Public outcry growing louder against gas compressors


Published:

Progress on several gas projects has outraged nearby residents and put the gas compressor debate back into the media spotlight.


About 80 people attended an informational meeting on Sept. 17 in Myersville, Maryland, regarding Dominion Transmission’s proposal to build a 16,000 hp (11,936 kW) natural gas compressor station. Attendees raised concerns over pollution, and a study was later released linking premature death to long-term air pollution exposure.

U.S. Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ) wrote a letter to the chair of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to evaluate whether the Williams/Transco gas compressor station in Roseland, New Jersey,  poses safety risks to residents. One New Jersey resident, David Rager, recently questioned the safety of the station, which is located underneath high-tension power lines wires that could fall during a storm.
