PennEast Pipeline is a $1.2 billion, 118-mile brand new (greenfield) pipeline project planned between the Wilkes-Barre, PA area and the Trenton, NJ area. The project has faced stiff opposition from nutty Big Green groups and from the Democrats who have seized control of NJ. Because of NJ’s opposition (and a court case now before the U.S. Supreme Court), in January PennEast asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for permission to break the project into two phases (see PennEast Asks FERC to Break Pipeline Project into 2 Phases). PennEast wants to build Phase One (68 miles) in PA, and later on (after the lawsuits are finished), build Phase Two (50 miles) in NJ. FERC was supposed to issue a new environmental assessment (EA) on the revised two-part plan by July 10…but did not.
