Trans-Pecos Pipeline-

The Trans-Pecos Pipeline is a Texas pipeline designed to transport 1.4 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas as part of an agreement with Comisión Federal de Electricidad, Mexico’s federal electricity commission. Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners along with Mas-Tech, Inc., and Carso Energy is responsible for constructing and operating the 148-mile, 42-inch diameter pipeline which will originate at the Waha Hub outside Fort Stockton, Texas in northern Pecos County. The pipeline will include delivery locations for local towns and utilities in Central West Texas all the way to the U.S.-Mexico boundary near Presidio, Texas. From there it continues to Ojinaga, Mexico, where it will be piped further into Mexico. The estimated cost is $767 million. Soil erosion and contamination of water sources is a huge concern. An estimated 500 million to 1.5 billion gallons of water will be wasted during the construction and testing of the pipeline.

Pinelands Pipeline-

The Pinelands Pipeline will cut through the New Jersey Pine Barrens and have negative effects on open space, the environment and wildlife. The 22-mile fracked gas pipeline will run right over the Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer which is beneath the Pinelands and contains approximately 17 trillion gallons of freshwater. Now a second pipeline is being proposed to cut through the Pinelands. New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) is proposing to construct a 30-mile pipeline that will begin in Burlington County New Jersey. The NJNG pipeline will connect to the Transco pipeline in Chesterfield through a compressor station being proposed as part of New Jerseys Expansion project. It’ll transport fracked gas coming from Pennsylvania’sPennEast Pipeline—a 118-mile, 36-inch- diameter pipeline proposed to cut across Pennsylvania.

Southern Reliability Link Pipeline (SRL)

New Jersey Natural Gas Pipeline called the Southern Reliability LInk (SRL) is a $130 million 30 mile pipeline by New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG). The new pipeline is proposed to run through Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (Joint Base), which lies entirely within the new Jersey Pinelands. Of particular concern throughout the pipeline's route in the Pinelands is the fact that the pipeline will be immersed in the groundwater aquifer and likely to leak methane, which would contaminate groundwater. The proposed route of the SRL runs through multiple areas of groundwater contamination, including two Superfund sites, where it risks altering the hydrology (movement of ground water) on which the remediation plans for these areas depend.

Pacific Trails Pipeline-

The Pacific Trail Pipeline (PTP) is a proposed 480 kilometre natural gas pipeline from the Liard and Horn River Basins in northeastern B.C. via Summit Lake, to the Kitimat LNG facility site at Bish Cove on the northwest coast of British Columbia. The Pacific Trails pipeline is proposed by the Apache Corporation, Encana and EOG Resources (formerly Enron). The $1 billion pipeline would carry up to approximately 1,000 million cubic feet per day of liquefied natural gas from northeastern B.C. and Alberta to export markets. The Chevron backed pipeline will run through Unist’ot’en Clan territory. This pipeline will cross the river at the exact points of the Unist’ot’en Pithouse, and Permaculture Garden that was built on the Unist'ot'en Territory of Talbits Kwah.

Trans Mountain Pipeline-

The Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline System, or simply the Trans Mountain Pipeline, is an oil pipeline that carries crude and refined oil from Alberta to the west coast of British Columbia. It is wholly owned by the Canadian division of Kinder Morgan. This pipeline is already in use but it has just been granted an expansion. The federal government gave its approval for Kinder Morgan's $6.8-billion expansion of the pipeline. The expansion would triple the capacity of the existing pipeline and go through a number of communities along the way. The pipeline will transport diluted bitumen, called dilbit. A type of heavy crude oil, dilbit contains various toxicants, some of which are classified as Group 1 carcinogens “with no known safe threshold of exposure,” the report states. The expansion also puts into jeopardy the health of dozens of First Nations communities, 61 of which are opposed to the expansion. Completion of this expansion would increase Canadian crude oil tankers in the Salish Sea from 120 to 816 transits a year which increases probability of major oil spills. The Tsleil-Waututh Nation argues that the Kinder Morgan project would cause serious, permanent, and far-reaching impacts to the Tsleil-Waututh. The Coldwater Nation, which is one of 15 bands that together comprise the Nlaka’pamux Nation, focuses on the threat to its aquifer which is the sole source of drinking water for over 90 per cent of people on the Coldwater Reserve.

TransCanada Energy East Pipeline-

This $15.7 billion, 4,600-kilometre pipeline will carry 1.1-million barrels of crude oil per day from Alberta and Saskatchewan to refineries in Eastern Canada. This pipeline poses a huge problem with First Nations and municipalities in Quebec. In light of the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline to bring oil from Canada in to the U.S. by President Trump, this pipeline is still waiting for approval but TransCanada is still committed to pushing this pipeline forward and believe it will become a reality. The mega-pipeline would put nearly 3,000 lakes, rivers and streams at risk of oil spills and threaten the drinking water of nearly 5.6 million Canadians.

Mariner East II Pipeline-

This 306-mile pipeline will move propane and other natural gas liquids across southern Pennsylvania and has just received the green light to begin construction. Mariner East II is to run from Washington County across Pennsylvania to Marcus Hook in Delaware County. The pipeline is to extend into Ohio and West Virginia as well. It is to have off-load points in Pennsylvania, but its products also are to be shipped out of state. The route takes it through Cumberland County PA, where several residents fought a court battle to keep it off their land. Commonwealth Court found that Sunoco Logistics, which are the owners of this pipeline, is a "public utility corporation" that has the power to seize private land for its multi-state pipeline, and in December 2016, the state Supreme Court refused to hear the land-owners' appeal.

Nexus Pipeline-

The 256 mile nexus pipeline with travel through heavily populated counties in Ohio and will also travel through Michigan to Canada. As of right FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) HAS NOT approved of the project due to the lack of a quorum FERC isn't able to vote. Legal actions are pending on this pipeline so the fight is still going strong to put and end to Nexus.  Well before the route was proposed, surveyors have been entering private property in Northeast Ohio to prepare the construction job. In some cases, armed officers from the county sheriff's office have accompanied them. The Singer Lake Bog in Green Ohio is home to 50 rare or endangered species of plants and insects. The Cleveland Museum of Natural History, which owns the property, fears a pipeline could damage it permanently. This $2 billion pipeline is owned by Enbridge whom has just merged with Spectra Energy to create one giant problem.

Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline-

The Atlantic Sunrise pipeline is a project of Tulsa, Oklahoma-based Williams Partners. Williams currently operates the Transco system which has over 10,000 miles of pipeline moving gas to other businesses, like utility companies and power plants. The Atlantic Sunrise is a 180-mile $3 billion expansion of the Transco system. It’s designed to move gas from Susquehanna County in northeastern Pennsylvania, connect with an existing pipeline and travel as far south as Alabama. The line would go through 10 central Pennsylvania counties. It would carry the gas to markets along the eastern seaboard, including the Cove Point liquefied natural gas export terminal on the Chesapeake Bay. County residents have joined indigenous leaders in condemning the plans of Transco/Williams to run the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline through confirmed Native American burial grounds and ancient archaeological sites located in southern Lancaster County.

Bayou Bridge Pipeline-

If the Dakota Access pipeline is completed, fracked oil from North Dakota will flow to Patoka, Illinois. From there, it will connect to existing pipelines that lead to Nederland, Texas, and pass through a newly completed pipeline carrying it to Lake Charles, Louisiana. The last 163 mile stretch of the route will be the Bayou Bridge pipeline. This portion will link Lake Charles in western Louisiana to refineries in St. James Parish, cutting across the Atchafalaya Basin, a national heritage area that is America’s largest natural swamp. The basin is home to several endangered species, and is the hub for the commercial crawfishing industry. Hundreds of pipelines already criss-cross the Atchafalaya Basin, which is littered with thousands of abandoned wells. The Bayou Bridge Pipeline is owned by Phillips 66 Partners, Energy Transfer Partners, L.P., and Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.

Line 5 Pipeline-

Line 5 carries oil from Superior, Wisconsin, across Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, through northern Michigan, down to the thumb region and under the St. Clair River to Sarnia, Ontario. This pipeline also carries crude oil that originated in the Bakken oil fields of North Dakota. Along the way, the pipeline crosses through the Straits of Mackinac, multiple rivers and streams, and, in northern Michigan, goes through almost 10 miles of wetlands and runs right next to many inland lakes. This aging pipeline is currently transferring oil as you read this. There are several problems with this pipeline:  The age, location, and condition of the pipeline. The tarnished safety record of Enbridge, Inc., the Canadian company that operates the pipeline. A recent increase in the volume and pressure of fluids moving through the pipeline. The pipelines location in the Straits of Mackinac cross one of the most ecologically sensitive areas in the world. The Great Lakes are home to 20 percent of the fresh surface water on the planet. The pristine Straits area supports bountiful fisheries, provides drinking water to thousands of people. This pipeline must be shut down for good before permanent damage is done.

Enbridge Wisconsin Corridor-

Not only is Wisconsin dealing with the Line 5 (listed above) and Line 3 (listed below) expansions, but the Enbridge Line 61 travels through Wisconsin from Superior to Delavan, then crosses the Illinois state line and continues south to refineries. Enbridge is currently tripling the capacity of Line 61 from the original 400,000 barrels per day to 1.2 million barrels per day making it a third larger than the projected Keystone XL. Enbridge’s plans don’t stop with Line 61. Initial work is under way to “twin” Line 61creating a new Line 66 on the same route that would carry an additional 800,000 barrels per day. With Line 61 and new Line 66 at full capacity, 2 million barrels of tar sands oil would flow through Wisconsin each day. A state report says the company has had 85 oil spills over the past decade.

Enbridge Line 3 Pipeline-

The Line 3 crude oil pipeline is a replacement project proposed by Calgary-based Enbridge Inc. The $7.5-billion, 1,660-kilometre pipeline replacement project would be the most expensive in Enbridge history. The line is currently up and running but is almost half a century old and has been reduced through pressure restrictions to about 390,000 barrels of oil per day. The replacement of this pipeline will restore the original regulated capacity of 760,000 barrels per day, nearly doubling oil shipping potential. Line 3 already has a U.S. presidential permit. On the Canadian side of the border, Enbridge intends to spend $4.9 billion to replace Line 3 between Hardisty, Alta., and the Canada-U.S. border at Gretna, Man. On the U.S. side, it will spend $2.6-billion to replace pipe between Neche, North Dakota, and its terminal in Superior, Wisconsin, from which crude can be transported to refinery markets in Chicago, the U.S. Gulf Coast, the eastern U.S. and Canada. It would cross the Mississippi, it would cross sensitive water resources, and create new pipeline corridor where one currently doesn’t exist. Ochapowace First Nation, which has land near Pilot Butte Canada, outlined eight concerns with the pipeline. Keeseekoose First Nation submitted concerns similar to Ochapowace's: The pipeline's proximity to land held by the First Nation. And Pasqua First Nation was worried that it is located downstream from Line 3 replacement's crossing of the Qu'Appelle Valley.

Energy Transfer Crude Oil Project sometimes called the Trunkline Pipeline will be the southern transport leg of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). It connects to DAPL in Patoka, Illinois, runs through Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, links up to the Bayou Bridge Pipeline in Louisiana, and ends near Nederland, Texas. Some of this (Trunkline) pipeline has already been built many years ago and was used as a gas pipeline. ETCOP will use 678 miles of the existing Trunkline, which will be converted to an oil pipeline and reversed. In addition, 66 miles of new pipeline will be built.

Dominion Transco Pipeline (Moore Chappells)-

Dominion’s proposed 55-mile Transco to Charleston South Carolina pipeline will rip through sensitive habitat in the Upstate from Moore to Chappells. The project will permanently impact 255 acres of land, including agricultural, forest and residential land, and will cross bodies of water 73 times, including the South Tyger, Enoree and Saluda Rivers and many of their tributaries. Also potentially impacted are three drinking water providers – the Woodruff Roebuck Water District, the City of Clinton, and the City of Newberry. The project also calls for a permanent 50-foot right of way easement along the length of the pipeline, causing habitat fragmentation and reducing shade to streams at crossings.

Utica Marcellus Texas Pipeline (Old Tennessee Gas Pipeline)-

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners and MarkWest, two large energy/ pipeline companies, have a plan to re-purpose the Tennessee Gas Pipeline from its current use for natural gas to carry natural gas liquids (NGLs), a byproduct of natural gas extraction. The pipeline will then be called the Utica Marcellus Texas Pipeline. The company's plan is to take this aging pipeline that was built to transport natural gas from the gulf coast to the northeast, and reverse the direction of flow to send hazardous natural gas liquids, or "NGLs," to processing and export facilities in Louisiana and Texas. These NGLs are hydrocarbon byproducts of fracking in the Marcellus and Utica shales, and pose unique and increased environmental and safety risks over the natural gas currently transported in the line. Of particular concern is that a significant portion of the NGLs remain liquid under ambient pressure and can contaminate water and soil. When NGLs leak, about 85% will turn into an odorless, colorless and highly flammable vapor once they hit the air. NGL vapor is heavier than air and will stay low to the ground, settling in valleys, creeks, rivers or other low points. These vapors can be ignited by heat, spark or flame. That means a tractor or car engine can set off an explosion. This pipeline crosses 6 states! Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas.

Pacific NorthWest LNG Plant

The federal cabinet has approved an $11.4 billion pipeline project that would transport natural gas over 900 km from northern British Columbia to the Prince Rupert area. The Pacific Northwest LNG project is backed by the giant Malaysian company Petronas. Without any warning, in early May 2015, Petronas offered Lax Kw'alaams tribe of Canada $1.25 Billion dollars to allow them to build a liquified natural gas (LNG) plant on their Lax U'u'la territory. In three rounds of voting, the community voted 100% unanimously NO to this offer, as the risk to salmon in Flora Bank, which is traditional Lax Kw'alaams territory Lax U'u'la (Lelu Island) at the mouth of the Skeena river near Prince Rupert, BC. They stated clearly that Flora Bank is off-limits to industrial development. 330 million migrating salmon from the Skeena river rely on Flora Bank. 10 Nations and 60,000 people in the Skeena watershed rely on these fish for food, commercial fishing, and cultural identity. After the vote, the BC government and Petronas acted as if the vote did not happen. Without changing their plant design, Petronas gave their conditional Final Investment Decision on June 11, 2015 for the project, making it the first LNG project in BC to get to final investment. British Columbia passed the LNG Project Agreements Act to allow Petronas to build on Lax U'u'la.

Island Gas Connector Pipeline and Malahat LNG

Oklahoma-based Williams is working with Vancouver-based Steelhead LNG to explore building and operating the proposed Island Gas Connector – an estimated 81-mile underground and underwater pipeline system that would deliver Canadian-sourced natural gas to Steelhead LNG’s proposed Malahat facility on Vancouver Island. The pipeline would begin in the United States and end in Canada. The pipeline would run approximately 34 miles in Washington state from Sumas to the Birch Bay/Custer area. Approximately 47 miles would be placed on the seabed in the Salish Sea between the Birch Bay/Custer area. Steelhead LNG is also proposing to build a floating natural gas liquefaction and export facility on the shoreline of Malahat Nation-owned Bamberton Industrial Lands approximately five miles south of Mill Bay, BC, in the Saanich Inlet of Vancouver Island. Sadly the Malahat Nation signed a deal to move forward. BUT the WSANEC First Nations stressed that they are highly opposed and they further seek cessation of any activity on the territory.

PSE LNG

Puget Sound Energy wants to build a 140 foot, 8 million gallon liquid natural gas storage tank with production capability of 500,000 gallons a day. Puget Sound Energy previously leased liquid natural gas storage at Williams Northwest Pipeline’s LNG plant in Plymouth, WA. That facility had an explosion in 2014 that injured 5 workers and forced everyone within a two mile radius to evacuate. The Plymouth LNG plant is still only operating at half capacity. Now Puget Sound Energy wants to build a $310 million liquid natural gas tank in the Port of Tacoma. This facility would be the second only marine bunkering facility in the US, and the largest. From this new tank, four miles of new pipeline will be constructed through the City of Fife to expand the amount of natural gas that can be piped into the port and an additional mile through unincorporated Pierce County to a new gas distribution station.The Puyallup Tribe is strongly opposed to this facility right next to their marina on the Hylebos. 28 Washington tribes voted to opposes PSE LNG.

Pacific Gas Connector and Jordan Cove LGN Terminal

The Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline project is a proposed 235-mile, 36-inch diameter pipeline designed to transport up to 1.2 million dekatherms of natural gas per day from interconnects near Malin, Oregon, to the Jordan Cove LNG terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon, where the natural gas will be liquefied for transport to serve overseas markets. The pipeline will cross federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Forest Service, Bureau of Reclamation, as well as private lands. BLM-managed lands include four BLM districts: Coos Bay, Roseburg, Medford and Lakeview/Klamath Falls. It’s estimated that 41.9 miles of BLM-managed lands will be crossed by the pipeline. Approximately 30.56 miles of National Forest System lands will be crossed in the Umpqua, Rogue River-Siskiyou and Fremont-Winema National Forests. The pipeline would cross salmon and steelhead streams, including the Coos, Coquille, Rogue, South Umpqua and Klamath rivers. Jordan Cove LNG Terminal would be located within the Port of Coos Bay on the North Spit of lower Coos Bay in Oregon. In December of 2016 FERC denied both projects BUT in 2017 both projects are reapplying for construction.

The Spire STL Pipeline will interconnect with the existing Rockies Express Pipeline in Scott County, Illinois. The planned route includes 66 miles of steel underground pipeline running through Scott, Greene and Jersey counties in Illinois and then pass under the Missouri River and through St. Charles and St. Louis Counties in Missouri before connecting with existing Laclede Gas facilities.. This pipeline would cross important Native burial sites and FERC has already sent out letters to multiple indigenous nations notifying them of Spire's plan. The $220 million pipeline would be carrying up to 400,000 Dth/d of natural gas to the St. Louis area.

There is a petition here to STOP the Spire STL Pipeline
