U.S. Takes More Time to Decide on New York Denial for Constitution Natural Gas Pipeline

Reuters reported: U.S. federal energy regulators gave themselves more time to decide whether to rehear their earlier order upholding New York’s denial of a water permit for Williams Cos Inc’s Constitution natural gas pipeline from Pennsylvania to New York. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on Wednesday rejected Constitution’s request to overturn New York’s denial of a water quality certification in January.

Williams argued New York waived its authority under the Clean Water Act to decide on the water quality certification for Constitution by failing to act within a reasonable period of time.
