Natural Gas NOW
The DC Circuit Court of Appeals has already remanded the Constitution Pipeline case back to FERC, and the agency is almost certainly going to overrule NY!
Well, that didn’t long. Apparently, the DC CIrcuit Court of Appeals couldn’t wait to get that FERC Remand request. They’ve already approved it!
It couldn’t be a better day for Williams, Northeast gas producers, Upstate New York communities needing gas, New England, the New York City metro area or the air that will get cleaner because gas will available to replace heavy oil and coal used in peaking power plants that should be closed and replaced with gas plants.
It’s also a great day for national security with the prospect of an alternative to Russian LNG coming to our shores. And, it’s a great day for landowners and gas industry employees who can now see another way to get Northeast gas to market. That will ensure natural gas development continues, more employees can be hired and landowners get better royalties.
Here is the good news from the court:
The battle is far from over and there are other hurdles and lawsuits. This, though, is the moment where the tide turns for the Constitution Pipeline. This is the moment when we can hope the NRDC gang gets a comeuppance. Who can’t love that?
