The PennEast Pipeline project continues to progress through the approval process in a timely fashion in PA while NY keeps playing the fool.

Congratulations to the PennEast Pipeline project on the issuing of its 401 Water Quality Certification from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

Contrast this with the way New York State has politically delayed and obstructed approvals of Constitution and Millennium Pipeline projects. What a difference a border makes.

The Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline is helping move the U.S. towards energy independence by delivering affordable, clean natural gas.

The U.S. is on the verge of energy independence due to its rapid and abundant growth in oil and gas production.  Domestically produced natural gas creates good paying American jobs as it reduces our need for foreign oil.  Pipelines are key to transport the natural gas into areas where supply is currently limited or being imported from other countries.

Jerry Russell

What we really want is freedom to invite business to come into upstate New York without being micro-managed from the State Government, says this landowner.

I may be off the subject to mention this on a pro natural gas blog but it seems that  residents of Upstate New York have more problems to deal with in their everyday lives than just the ban on High Volume hydraulic Fracturing ( HVHF). I have mentioned in another post the feelings of upstate citizens of being treated as serfs in the minds of New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo and that we are tired of begging for a handout. With almost comedic timing the following day, the Binghamton Press and Sun Bulletin reported that the Governor offered to put together an economic stimulus package for Binghamton. “Like they did for Buffalo”.
