New Video of Spectra Pipeline Action in New York City from Occupy Pipeline

Oct 5th, 2012 | By Mark
This graphic details three zones should an explosive event occur at the proposed Spectra natural gas pipeline currently under consideration for construction in lower Manhattan: a 500-foot radius, where everything would be incinerated if the pipeline were operating at the lower end of the pressure scale, around 800 pounds per square inch (psi); an 800-foot radius, where massive damage would occur if the pipeline were to be operating at the maximum 1,450 psi; and a 1,000 foot radius, in which enormous destruction would occur at any pressure.

A few weeks ago, a group of protesters affiliated with Occupy the Pipeline managed to gain access to the construction site at Gansevoort and the Hudson Parkway, where a massive new natural gas pipeline that will run from New Jersey into lower Manhattan is being laid, and blocked construction of the project for more than

Port Authority Remains Concerned About Natural Gas Pipeline into NYC

Feb 21st, 2012 | By Mark
This graphic details three zones should an explosive event occur at the proposed Spectra natural gas pipeline currently under consideration for construction in lower Manhattan: a 500-foot radius, where everything would be incinerated if the pipeline were operating at the lower end of the pressure scale, around 800 pounds per square inch (psi); an 800-foot radius, where massive damage would occur if the pipeline were to be operating at the maximum 1,450 psi; and a 1,000 foot radius, in which enormous destruction would occur at any pressure.

In a letter filed today with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey laid out a series of concerns the agency said remain unaddressed and could ultimately scuttle the agency’s support for the proposed Spectra Energy natural gas pipeline project. “Should FERC’s ultimate recommendation on final pipeline alignment and certification
