Court Blocks Gas Pipeline Construction

The Houston Chronicle reported: Efforts to expand natural gas infrastructure in the northeast have been struck another flow a federal appellate court. The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that state and federal regulators had not followed legal standards in approving a 300-mile pipeline running from natural gas fields in West Virginia to southern Virginia, named Mountain Valley Pipeline. “Today’s decision shows polluting corporations trying to run roughshod through Appalachia will be held accountable,” Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune said in a statement. ” In their haste to make a quick buck, MVP rushed essential processes because they knew there was no way their dirty project would ever satisfy commonsense protections for water and health.” For more on this story visit or click

Judge Okays New York Natural Gas Power Plant Tests

The Heartland Institute reported: Against the wishes of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) he controls, a county Supreme Court justice has ruled Competitive Power Ventures (CPV) can resume startup tests at its new, state-of-the-art, natural gas power plant in Wawayanda, New York, 53 miles north of New York City. Albany County Acting Supreme Court Justice Roger McDonough’s August 15 decision came two weeks after New York’s DEC informed CPV the plant’s original state-issued air permit had expired July 31, requiring the facility, known as the Valley Energy Center, to obtain a Clean Air Act Title V permit from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in order to operate. DEC threatened to impose an initial fine of $18,000 plus as much as $15,000 a day if the plant commenced operations without the permit. Obtaining a Title V permit from EPA would cause a considerable delay in the project, because the agency’s application process is complicated and includes a mandatory 45-day review by EPA air officials.
