FERC Approves Extensions for Constitution Pipeline and Dominion Transmission Projects

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has granted both Constitution Pipeline and Dominion Transmission extensions for their respective projects, giving Constitution Pipeline more time on its currently stalled PA-NY natural gas pipeline and Dominion Transmission more time to finish its Clarington project.

Constitution Pipeline requested an extension from FERC last Friday after the New York Department of Environmental Conservation declined to issue a Section 401 Water Quality Certification under the federal Clean Water Act. FERC granted Constitution Pipeline 24 more months to complete the pipeline that was originally set to be complete by December of 2016.

Constitution Pipeline’s project is a 124-mile, 30-inch diameter line that would transport natural gas produced in northeast Pennsylvania to Schoharie County, New York.

FERC also granted extension of Dominion’s Clarington project, which involves a series of new compression facilities, interconnections, and associated equipment designed to boost capacity on its mainline system by 250,000 Dth/d.

Dominion’s original order for the project had a finish date of November 1, 2016, but FERC approved an extension for August 19, 2017.
