NORTHERN ACCESS PIPELINE

TIME’S UP! ENOUGH is ENOUGH!

unnamed-2

In January 2022, National Fuel applied to FERC, requesting 3 more years, until December 2024, to start and complete the Northern Access 2016 Pipeline Project.

Thank you to all who commented! We now await the decision of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Let’s hope they do the right thing by denying National Fuel three more years! Enough is Enough!
