Delta Lateral Project

Kern River Gas Transmission Company is proposing to construct and 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 National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) pre-filing process. As part of this process, Kern River is soliciting and including stakeholder feedback in the project planning phase. On July 1, 2020, FERC approved the request to use the pre-filing process (Docket No. PF20-4).
