Constitution Pipeline, Leatherstocking Gas Co. To Facilitate Potential Local Gas Service In Southern NY & Northern PA

Constitution Pipeline Company, LLC and Leatherstocking Gas Company, LLC today announced plans to install four delivery taps along Constitution’s proposed pipeline route to facilitate local natural gas service in southern New York and northern Pennsylvania as early as late 2015.

Leatherstocking is evaluating delivery point locations for local distribution of natural gas to homes and businesses in Delaware, Otsego and Susquehanna counties and one tap location that would provide service to the Amphenol Aerospace Plant in Sidney, N.Y. Last month, the Delaware County Industrial Development Agency awarded a grant of $750,000 for the construction of a natural gas pipeline from the proposed Constitution Pipeline to Amphenol Corporation’s existing facility in Sidney, N.Y., as well as a new planned manufacturing facility.

Specific tap locations will be finalized once the pipeline route is confirmed, currently pending final federal regulatory approval.

“The Constitution Pipeline can create a backbone for Leatherstocking Gas Company to extend the development of local natural gas distribution franchises in rural communities along the pipeline route in northern Pennsylvania and southern New York,” said Leatherstocking CEO Mike German. “We are excited about the possibilities for local service that this new pipeline infrastructure can provide.”

Leatherstocking’s vision encompasses development of local distribution systems to introduce natural gas service to locations within Broome, Chenango, Delaware, and Madison counties in New York and Susquehanna County in Pennsylvania that currently have no such service. Leatherstocking has franchise agreements in 10 municipalities within Delaware, Otsego, Chenango and Broome counties in New York. The New York State Public Service Commission must grant certificates of public convenience to Leatherstocking in the identified areas before distribution system development can begin.

“We believe working with Leatherstocking is a great opportunity to potentially provide gas service to communities along the pipeline route,” said Constitution Pipeline Project Manager Matt Swift. “The members of these communities who do not have access to local natural gas service will greatly benefit from this affordable, U.S.-produced, cleaner energy resource.”
