(Reuters) - Energy traders and natural gas pipeline companies on Friday hailed a U.S. federal regulator’s decision to overturn New York’s denial of a water permit for building the Millennium Pipeline in the state.

People in the industry expressed hope that the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission would be willing to override state decisions to block other pipelines, including Williams Cos Inc’s Constitution and National Fuel Gas Co’s Northern Access pipelines from Pennsylvania.

How to tell Cuomo frets the natural gas shortage: He’s passing the buck
Posted: November 1st, 2019

How do you know Gov. Andrew Cuomo has realized a policy is a political loser? Watch for him to start claiming someone else is responsible.

Why Is The United States Importing Natural Gas From Russia?
Posted: October 28th, 2019
