PennEast Confirms Cancellation of Pipeline Project to FERC

PennEast Cancels Pipeline
Posted December 1, 2021

PennEast Pipeline LLC confirmed to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that it has no further plans to pursue construction of its proposed 116-mile pipeline that would have cut through homes, communities and preserved open space in Mercer and Hunterdon Counties.

This “acknowledgment from PennEast that its project is dead puts to rest any speculation that the company is still seeking to build the pipeline. It also confirms that this unneeded project will not take our lands, pollute our waters or undermine our transition to a clean energy future,” said Tom Gilbert, campaign director, New Jersey Conservation Foundation and ReThink Energy NJ. “This pipeline was never necessary and PennEast’s efforts to sell its solution in search of a problem have failed.”
