Kinder Morgan formally withdraws federal application for Northeast Energy Direct pipeline

masslive.comKinder Morgan today formally withdrew its federal application for Northeast Energy Direct, the 420-mile pipeline which would carry Marcellus Shale gas from Pennsylvania into New England, meaning that the controversial project, as proposed, will not be built.

The news comes six months after the Texas energy giant filed its massive certificate application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and one month after Kinder Morgan suddenly announced it would “suspend further work and expenditures” on the project, citing inadequate firm capacity contracts for the proposed 2.2 billion cubic-foot line.
