About the project

As the fourth largest natural gas consuming state in the country, New York runs on natural gas. Integral to the New York state economy, the use of natural gas and the pipeline infrastructure that delivers gas from neighboring states not only provides clean, homegrown, abundant, reliable and affordable energy, but also provides good-paying jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue for communities nationwide.

The Northern Access pipeline will provide an outlet for natural gas production in north-central Pennsylvania, connecting it to the interstate pipeline system. That system connects to markets in the northeastern U.S. and mid-Atlantic regions as well as eastern Canada. The new sections of pipeline will interconnect specifically with the existing Trans Canada and Tennessee Gas Pipeline systems.

The project awaits a clean water certification from the New York State DEC before construction can begin.

I’m a nineteen year member of local 798 pipeliners union. I have made a living welding on pipelines and in compressor stations my whole life. Building safe,economical transportation systems for natural gas and oil has always been the first and foremost goal of the union with the most state of the art training facilities available in the country today. Pipelines move more gas and oil safely than any other methods. I would like those it may concern to understand more about pipelines and how safely they transport products.
