Another Setback for Plans for a New Pipeline in NY’s Harbor

This article discusses how plans for a pipeline in NY’s Harbor has had another setback.

Three weeks after New York State rejected a bid to build a natural gas pipeline through its waters, the state of New Jersey did the same on Wednesday.

Like their counterparts in Albany, regulators in Trenton denied Williams Transco’s application for environmental permits for its Northeast Supply Enhancement Project “without prejudice,” leaving the door open for the company to apply again.

Williams and National Grid, the utility that has said it will buy all the gas provided by the new pipeline, vowed to do just that.
