XNG Virtual Pipe Delivering 50 MMcf/d of PA NatGas to NY Pipeline

Iroquois Gas Transmission is not waiting for the Constitution Pipeline to get built–they’ve found a way around it. At least for some of the supply they hopped to get from the Constitution. Iroquois is a 416-mile interstate natural gas pipeline extending from the U.S.-Canadian border at Waddington, NY, through New York State and western Connecticut to a terminus in Commack, NY (Long Island), and from Huntington (on Long Island) to the Bronx, NY. It is an important pipeline in the Empire State. Iroquois was in line to receive some of the 650 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of natural gas the Constitution would flow from northeast PA to Schoharie County, NY, where the Constitution would connect to both the Iroquois and Tennessee Gas Pipeline. We’re not sure how much of the 650 MMcf/d Iroquois was supposed to get, but right now and for the foreseeable future, they’re getting nothing, thanks to a corrupt governor who has corrupted New York’s environmental agency which has denied the Constitution a necessary permit to build. Iroquois has found a way to replace at least some of that volume–by trucking it in. That is, a “virtual pipeline” which is now feeding the Iroquois, and in-the-ground pipeline. Usually it’s the other way around! Iroquois is getting up to 50 MMcf/d from Xpress Natural Gas (XNG), which is trucking the gas from a facility in northeastern PA (Susquehanna County). Here’s a story you’ll read first (perhaps only) on MDN–of how a virtual pipeline is now feeding an interstate pipeline in New York State with fracked gas from Pennsylvania…
