Gas pipeline hearings slated on Northeast Energy Direct Pipeline

Federal officials have scheduled two hearings on another proposed natural gas pipeline in upstate New York.

ONEONTA, N.Y. (AP) — Federal officials have scheduled two hearings on another proposed natural gas pipeline in upstate New York.

The sessions hosted by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission are slated for 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 14 — one at the Foothills Performing Arts Center in Oneonta, the other at the Days Inn in Schoharie.

Houston-based Kinder Morgan Corp. wants to build the Northeast Energy Direct Pipeline to move gas from Pennsylvania through upstate New York and New England to export facilities in Canada for shipment overseas.

Construction of the pipeline needs approval from FERC, which already has approved construction of the 124-mile Constitution Pipeline, but the state DEC has authority over specific permits related to air and water quality and wetlands protection.

The Constitution Pipeline would begin in northern Pennsylvania and end in Schoharie County.
