The natural gas pipeline that was caught up in a months-long feud between New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and utility National Grid Plc has pulled its applications for permits in New Jersey.
Pipeline developer Williams Cos. took an “administrative step” to withdraw the New Jersey applications for its Northeast Supply Enhancement project, spokeswoman Laura Creekmur said in an email. The company is evaluating next steps for the project, she said. A representative for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection said Williams has indicated it will resubmit the applications, while a representative for Cuomo declined to comment.
