Constitution Pipeline receives FERC approval to construct project

Constitution Pipeline Co. LLC

Constitution Pipeline Co. LLC reports that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued an order approving construction of its proposed pipeline to increase natural gas supply to the New York and New England markets, subject to certain conditions that will ensure the protection of natural resources.

On Dec. 2, FERC issued its certificate of public convenience and necessity for the 124-mile Constitution Pipeline. Assuming timely receipt of all remaining necessary regulatory approvals, Constitution Pipeline would begin construction as early as the first quarter of next year in order to help meet growing natural gas demand in New York and New England by the winter of 2015 or 2016.

The Constitution Pipeline is designed to enhance New York’s natural gas supply options via an interconnect with the existing Iroquois Pipeline and to provide New England markets with energy via an interconnect with the existing Tennessee Gas Pipeline.
