From providing energy to heat our homes to fueling the electricity that powers our lights and charges our smartphones, natural gas is at the heart of the quality of life for most Americans. The proposed PennEast Pipeline will help utilities deliver this affordable energy source to families and businesses in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Representing a nearly $1 billion investment, this 120-mile, primarily 36-inch, underground pipeline will reduce energy costs and support thousands of jobs with clean-burning, American energy.
The PennEast Pipeline will originate in Dallas, Luzerne County, in northeastern Pennsylvania, and terminate at Transco’s pipeline interconnection near Pennington, Mercer County, New Jersey (approximately one-third of the route is located in New Jersey).
Several approvals will be required from nearly a dozen federal, state, bi-state and local government agencies, including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Pending regulatory approval, pipeline construction is expected to begin in 2018 and take approximately seven months to complete.
Upon completion of the Project, natural gas and electric consumers will realize savings from lower transportation costs associated with locally produced, abundant natural gas.
