US Gives NFG More Time to Build Northern Access Natgas Pipeline

Northern Access, which includes a 99-mile (159-km) pipeline, is designed to deliver about 0.49 Bcf/d of gas from the Marcellus shale in Pennsylvania to New York.


U.S. regulators have given National Fuel Gas Co. (NFG) more time to build its proposed Northern Access natural gas pipeline project in Pennsylvania and New York.

The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on June 29 approved NFG’s January request for a 35-month extension to build the project by December 2024.

Northern Access is one of several fossil fuel projects held up by regulators in New York over the past several years. Others include Williams Cos. Inc.’s Northeast Supply Enhancement and Constitution gas pipelines.
