The proposed 118-mile PennEast pipeline would cross the Delaware Wild and Scenic River and more than 4,300 acres of preserved lands in New Jersey, threatening significant natural and historic resources.
The PennEast pipeline alone would bring an additional one billion cubic feet per day of gas to Southeast Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and result in a 53% surplus beyond current demand in New Jersey, according to a study by the Labryinth Consulting Group. The Labryinth Study also concluded that “existing interstate pipelines supply all of New Jersey’s natural gas demands,” and that the true intent of the project is to deliver gas to other downstream markets.
“The pipeline proposed by the PennEast Pipeline Company, LLC…would adversely and permanently affect critical forest and water resources that provide essential habitat and other natural resource services. ” — Bonnie Watson Coleman, U.S. Representative (D – District 12)
“These are environmentally sensitive open spaces that I have fought to protect and preserve as a member of the New Jersey Legislature and I believe it would be fiscally and environmentally irresponsible to allow taxpayer-protected open space to be used in this manner.” — Leonard Lance, U.S. Representative (R – District 7)
“This pipeline is terrible. This one has to be stopped.” — Christopher “Kip” Bateman, State Senator, (R-District 16)
