A major gas pipeline that would run through the Catskills & the Southern Tier

The Constitution Pipeline is a joint venture between Williams and Cabot Oil and Gas.

As proposed, it would run 121 miles from Susquehanna County, PA to Schoharie County, NY.  It would be 30 inches in diameter, and initially carry 650,000 decatherms per day (Dth/d). [Energy equals 4.68 million gallons of oil or 357,500 BBQ-size propane tanks (20 lb).]  It will start with two compressor stations, but more will be built to add more gas.


As proposed, it would run 121 miles from Susquehanna County, PA to Schoharie County, NY.


Still requires the approval of the Federal Regulatory Energy Commission (FERC).

Williams is in a pre-filing stage, which means their official application has not been made. FERC will grant the power of eminent domain to Williams if FERC approves the project. To get the approval they need for the construction of the Constitution Pipeline, Williams must demonstrate to FERC that the project is not only “in the public interest” but that it is also a public “necessity” without which customers in the Northeast region will be deprived of essential energy supplies.


A 30 inches pipe, carrying the equivalent of 4.68 million gallons of oil day!
