Fed Court Case for Now-Defunct Constitution Pipe Put on Pause

In February Williams official gave up on building a long-delayed project to flow natural gas from northeastern Pennsylvania into central New York, called the Constitution Pipeline (see Sad Day: Williams Declares Constitution Pipeline Project Dead). We mourned the loss which hurt so deeply because it seemed the project was close to winning a federal court case against New York State, a case in which the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) said NY had taken too long to reject Constitution, thereby forfeiting its right to have a say in where the pipeline gets built. NY took FERC to court (see NY DEC Will “Fight” FERC over Constitution Pipeline Decision). That case seemed to us to be close to resolution, but since Williams has decided to cancel the project, the court case is now “frozen” in time.
