Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Several Counties in this Region

Project Description:

The Northern Access 2016 Project includes: 1) the construction of a new 24-inch-diameter transmission pipeline totaling approximately 97 miles from McKean County, Pennsylvania through Allegany, Cattaraugus and Erie Counties in New York; 2) construction of approximately 2.1 miles of 16-inch/24-inch transmission pipeline in the Town Pendleton in Niagara County, New York and 3) a pipeline interconnection with Tennessee Gas Pipeline in the Town of Wales, Erie County, New York.

This project proposed by National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation and Empire Pipeline, Inc. both subsidiaries of National Fuel Gas Company, is a new and upgraded gas pipeline with compressor upgrades to access markets in the northeastern US and Canada for delivery of natural gas. Approximately 78% of the project pipeline would be co-located with existing pipeline and powerline rights-of-way.

The project will provide an outlet for natural gas production in north-central Pennsylvania, connecting it to the interstate pipeline system. That system connects to markets in the northeastern United States as well as eastern Canada. The new sections of pipeline will interconnect specifically with the existing Trans Canada and Tennessee Gas Pipeline systems.

In New York State the project will include: 1) the crossing of 192 streams including 60 perennial streams; 77 intermittent streams, 48 ephemeral streams and 7 dry ditches. Nineteen (19) streams have a classification of C(t) or higher and 28 intermittent or ephemeral streams flow into a protected streams. Five (5) streams (4 locations) will be crossed using a horizontal directional drill (HDD) method and 3 streams will be bored. All remaining streams will be crossed using the dry crossing method; 2) the crossing of 13 NYSDEC Regulated Freshwater Wetlands totaling 2.20 miles in length.

The Department is also issuing a subsequent Notice of Legislative Public Hearing to receive verbal comments on these applications available at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/enb/20170125_not9.html.
