The Watershed Institute and other environmental groups believe that PennEast has improperly applied to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for an amendment of its Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity.
PennEast has asked FERC to allow it to build the proposed 120-mile PennEast natural gas pipeline in two phases. The company said the first section would be located entirely in Pennsylvania, followed by the construction of the second phase in New Jersey, with the terminus in Hopewell Township.
PennEast claims that Phase 1 can be built and operated without ever building Phase 2.
As a result of this application, FERC released an Environmental Assessment (EA) to describe and review the environmental impacts of this new proposal.
