ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Houston-based Kinder Morgan has withdrawn its application for a federal permit to build a $3.3 billion natural gas pipeline and a network of compressor stations.
The company announced last month that it was suspending work on the project, citing a lack of contracts with gas distribution companies. It formally withdrew its application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Monday.
New York regulators last month denied a water quality permit for the Constitution Pipeline, which would have followed much of the same route. That pipeline's developers are challenging the state's action in court.
