Delta Lateral Project

Kern River Gas Transmission Company has constructed and will operate the Delta Lateral Project, which will provide natural gas transportation from Kern River’s mainline near Holden, Utah, to a delivery point near Delta Utah.

The project’s facilities include an approximately 36-mile, 24-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline, tap assemblies, in-line inspection device launchers/receivers and a meter station. The Delta Lateral Project will enable Kern River to meet the energy needs of our customer in the area.

On June 23, 2020, Kern River submitted an application to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to participate in the NEPA pre-filing process. As part of this process, Kern River solicited and included stakeholder feedback in the project planning phase. On April 23, 2021, Kern River submitted an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to FERC to construct the Delta Lateral Project (Docket No. CP21-197-000). The filing of this application marked the end of the FERC pre-filing process.
