Pilgrim Pipeline Holdings said Wednesday that most of the pipeline will follow rights of way along the Thruway in the Hudson Valley. One pipeline would carry crude oil south to refineries and the other would carry refined products such as heating oil and gasoline north.
The permit application is before the state Thruway Authority. A formal environmental review will include public comment.
The company says the pipeline would be a safer way to transport crude oil that is now shipped by rail and Hudson River barge from the Port of Albany.
The project has drawn opposition from local groups and municipalities in New York and New Jersey.
