PennEast files formal application with FERC

PennEast Pipeline Co. LLC submitted its application on Sept. 24 to the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a permit to proceed with construction of the proposed PennEast Pipeline.

PennEast is requesting that FERC issue a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity, which would authorize PennEast to construct, install, own, operate, and maintain the approximately 118-mile, 36-in.-diameter PennEast Pipeline. Upon completion, the underground natural gas pipeline would deliver approximately 1 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day.

Pending regulatory approval and issuance of a FERC certificate, PennEast anticipates beginning construction in 2017. AGL Resources, NJR Pipeline Co., PSEG Power LLC, SJI Midstream, Spectra Energy Partners, and UGI Energy Services form the PennEast Pipeline Co.

UGI Energy Services serves as the project manager and would be the operator of the proposed PennEast Pipeline.
