About the Southern Reliability Link

The Southern Reliability Link (SRL) is 30-mile transmission pipeline designed to support the safe, reliable, resilient distribution of natural gas to New Jersey Natural Gas’ (NJNG) customers. The SRL will provide a major interstate connection between NJNG’s distribution system that serves customers in Ocean, Burlington and Monmouth counties and the interstate pipeline system adjacent to the New Jersey Turnpike. By reinforcing the supply of natural gas with a feed from a separate interstate supplier into the southern end of NJNG’s system, the SRL will help mitigate potential customer interruptions, enhance system resiliency and ensure safe, reliable natural gas service for the region.
 
The SRL will also strengthen the reliability and resiliency of the natural gas distribution system that serves the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (Joint Base) and supports its critical mission.
