New compressor station under construction in NJ

24 January 2023

Kinder Morgan’s Tennessee Gas Pipeline (TGP) is an approximately 11,760-mile pipeline system that transports natural gas supplied from the Northeast section of the United States, to diverse end-use demand markets including New York City and Boston in the Northeast, the Louisiana and Texas Gulf Coast, and Mexico.

Local opposition to a planned compressor station in West Milford, New Jersey runs stiff even as Tennessee Gas Pipeline is working to complete the new station.

In April 2022, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued permits for Tennessee Gas Pipeline (TGP) to upgrade two existing compressor stations in Pennsylvania and to build a new compressor station in West Milford (Passaic County), New Jersey, just across the border and not far from Westchester County, NY.

Once complete, TGP’s East 300 Upgrade Project will flow more Marcellus gas to Westchester County and to New York City. TGP is currently constructing the new compressor in West Milford, which will be powered with electricity and have almost zero emissions.

Environmental groups Food & Water Watch and the New Jersey Highlands Coalition together sued TGP in New Jersey Supreme Court to try and block the West Milford compressor. The case is still pending even as construction continues.
