The Northeast Supply Enhancement Project (NESE Project) is a 26-inch diameter pipeline proposed by Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company LLC (Transco) that would transport natural gas from Pennsylvania through New Jersey, travelling underwater in the Raritan Bay and Lower New York Bay to approximately three miles offshore of the Rockaway Peninsula in Queens Borough. Approximately 23.5 miles of underwater pipeline will be installed, of which approximately 17.4 miles would be in New York State waters.

Individuals and parties may file written comments to the NYS DEC representative listed above or may submit comments electronically at NESEproject@dec.ny.gov.
