SUGAR LAND, Texas, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--When it comes to 11th-hour regulatory decisions, the proposed Northern Access Pipeline has won one and lost one. The interstate natural gas pipeline project was granted a permit from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) (Washington, D.C.) in early February, a few days before that agency lost its quorum, which prevents the commission from making regulatory decisions. But at 11:22 p.m. on April 7, 38 minutes before a New York State agency was legally required to accept or reject a permit application for the $455 million Northern Access Pipeline project, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) (Albany, New York) faxed its permit denial to Northern Access' developer, National Fuel Gas Company (Williamsville, New York).
