Pipelines Puncture Susquehanna County: Your Voice Here

June 3, 2012

Please comment to FERC

You know the facts:  Williams Pipeline is a major player.  With 5.3 billion cubic feet of natural gas being produced DAILY in Pennsylvania, the industry is desperate to create new markets overseas to raise the price of natural gas.  This requires a vast network of pipelines.  Those pipelines will cause more habitat loss and fragmentation than all of the drilling sites, reservoirs and access roads used in the initial drilling.

If you have facebook, you can send your comments to FERC now on the prefile phase of the Constitution Pipeline [ a 30 inch transmission line starting in Brooklyn PA [Susquehanna County ] .

Construction has started on the Williams Midstream Central Station – with NONE of the environmental studies required by FERC as they used a DEP GP-5 to permit what they said was to be a two engine compressor called the Central HP Compressor.  In reality, the project is much more vast. This 54 acre site will be a huge compressor and meter station.

    This letter is in response to the Constitution Pipeline Company announcement on April 24 of the execution of commitment agreements for transport on the proposed 121-mile pipeline connecting the Marcellus with northeastern markets by spring 2015. Constitution Pipeline is a joint venture between Williams Partners and Cabot Oil & Gas, and is intended to interconnect in New York with Iroquois Gas Transmission Company and Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company. The commitment agreements are for 500 MMcfd by Cabot Oil & Gas and 150 MMcfd by Southwestern Energy Company. Constitution Pipeline was granted pre-filing status by FERC on April 16.
    This application was submitted under a PADEP GP-5 to permit that Williams said was to be a two engine compressor called the Central HP Compressor. In reality, the project is much more vast. This 54 acre site will be a huge compressor and metering station. GP-5 permits allows the construction to occur with none of the environmental studies required by FERC.
    This project will cause more habitat loss and fragmentation than all of the drilling sites, reservoirs and access roads used in the initial drilling in my county.
    It is my opinion that this request under GP-5 was made with the express desire by Williams to circumvent public input and environmental review studies. I request that FERC perform a complete prefiling review before proceeding in this case. As a citizen of Susquehanna County I oppose the deceptive processes used by Williams and other pipeline companies to get their infrastructure in place without citizen review or environmental studies.

    New assaults are happening daily to Pennsylvania’s environment and safety. Hydraulic fracturing Companies have lost sight of the rights of human beings to health. We’re faced now with disaster on an unprecedented scale.
