The following message was received from the PennEast Pipe project representatives on October 8, 2014:
Dear Community Leader,
On October 7, 2014, PennEast Pipeline Company, LLC, submitted its formal request to initiate pre-filing review by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The application is the first step in requesting FERC certificate approval for the proposed pipeline. PennEast Pipeline is not required to use the comprehensive, multi-step FERC pre-filing review process; however, PennEast chose to request pre-filing in order to work cooperatively with the FERC staff on the technical engineering and environmental aspects of the project before a formal application is submitted.
The pre-filing process creates the framework for the environmental analysis required of the location, design and permitting for construction of the proposed natural gas pipeline. Pre-filing also includes a formal structure for stakeholders along the proposed route to provide input and opinions regarding the proposed PennEast Pipeline.
If approved for the pre-filing process, FERC will assign the PennEast Pipeline Project a docket number (Note: FERC Docket Number: Click HERE
and then click on "File List" to view documents submitted with filing) and PennEast will share the docket number through its website and news release. Once a docket number is assigned, FERC will accept public comment regarding the proposal. PennEast anticipates beginning the process of submitting project documents to FERC by the end of October and plans to complete pre-filing and file a formal application in spring 2015.
