New York nixes natural gas pipeline from Pennsylvania

By The Associated Press

State environmental regulators have blocked development of a second major pipeline that would have carried natural gas from Pennsylvania's shale fields to New York and other markets.

 

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — State environmental regulators have blocked development of a second major pipeline that would have carried natural gas from Pennsylvania's shale fields to New York and other markets.

New York's Department of Environmental Conservation informed National Fuel Gas Company Friday it was denying a water quality permit for the 97-mile Northern Access Pipeline to western New York, saying it endangered wetlands, streams and other habitat.

The permit denial came about a year after DEC derailed the 124-mile Constitution Pipeline from Pennsylvania to eastern New York by denying a water quality permit. Constitution is appealing.

National Fuel said Monday the state's rejection of energy infrastructure projects is "not sustainable."

DEC said it relied on a detailed review of National Fuel's materials, feedback from public hearings, and more than 5,700 public comments.
