Constitution Pipeline in-service delayed until second-half 2017

The target in-service date for the Constitution Pipeline Co. LLC natural gas system has been delayed by about 6 months until second-half 2017, reported partner Cabot Oil & Gas Corp., Houston.

“This adjustment is to ensure compliance with the environmental conditions of the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission order, as well as the US Fish and Wildlife Service biological opinion,” Cabot said.

Specifically, Cabot said, the in-service date adjustment is in response to the rapidly closing environmental window to complete tree felling activities before Mar. 31. To date, Constitution has completed nearly all tree felling activities in Pennsylvania.

The Constitution system, a 124-mile, 30-in., 650 MMcfd capacity joint-venture gas line, will span from northeast Pennsylvania to the Iroquois Pipeline in upstate New York.

Partners in the system include Cabot, Williams Cos. Inc., Piedmont Natural Gas, and WGL Holdings.

FERC gave the line its final environmental review in fall 2014 (OGJ Online, Oct. 27, 2014).
