Penneast, the company spearheading a proposed 100-mile pipeline known as the “PennEast Pipeline,” has postponed its attendance to tomorrow’s Mercer County Board of Freeholder meeting.

“This project is in the earliest stages of development,” said Peter Terranova, chairman of the PennEast Pipeline Board of Managers. “We cannot answer many specific questions at this time. At our request, the meeting with the board is being postponed. This will allow time to gather the information necessary to address the county’s questions, which we will be able to do best as the Project progresses and we ourselves finalize details.”

PennEast plans to announce a series of “open houses” soon for communities along the proposed route. Tentatively, they will be scheduled during the second week of November and will be designed to enable attendees to visit stations to talk one-on-one with experts in the fields of safety, land, environment, construction and operations.

“The open houses align with our ongoing commitment to working with local officials and other stakeholders to keeping everyone well informed, obtaining early feedback, understanding the concerns, and making adjustments to our plans when necessary,” Terranova said.
