Last evening the US Court for the District of Columbia lifted the halt of construction.
As you know, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia halted construction on the entire Atlantic Sunrise pipeline on Monday. Thanks to all of you who visited construction sites to document activity and see workers off.
"A U.S. federal appeals court on Wednesday lifted a temporary stay of construction on Williams Cos Inc’s nearly $3 billion Atlantic Sunrise natural gas pipeline from Pennsylvania to South Carolina.
Some energy traders had worried the stay could have caused a delay in the pipeline’s in service date, which would keep gas trapped in the Marcellus shale."
Reading the rest of the pro-industry article, rife with lies and false data, is not recommended.
It seems that news organizations are unwilling to fact check Williams's press statements, allowing misconceptions about jobs and other economic benefits to be spread.
"The nearly $3 billion Atlantic Sunrise project will increase the amount of Marcellus Shale gas that can be transported into the South. The pipeline will cross 10 Pennsylvania counties including Lancaster and Lebanon.
The project includes revising piping in six compressor stations in Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina to permit natural gas to flow in both directions."
