Latest Williams Pipeline Permit Withdrawal December 09 2019, 0 Comments

From Politico New York Energy (2019 12 02) by Samantha Maldonado:

Williams Companies last week withdrew the final permit it had submitted to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for construction of a pipeline that would supply natural gas to New York City and Long Island. The freshwater wetlands permit was the only permit remaining with the DEP after the company withdrew three permit applications in October. Williams is awaiting approval from New York. The Department of Environmental Conservation has indicated it will make a decision on the new application by May 17. The project has been the subject of intense opposition from environmentalists and a public dispute between National Grid, the utility that will purchase the gas, and New York regulators.
