Bureau of Land Management asks to delay Atlantic Coast Pipeline

The Bureau of Land Management has the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to delay the proposed construction of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.  For those who don’t know, this pipeline will run from Virginia to North Carolina, potentially devastating parts of Eastern North Carolina.  The Bureau is seeking to delay this project to give the backers of the pipeline more time they need to conduct survey work on federal lands before the project actually moves into the construction phase.

From Natural Gas Intel:

“Additional survey data must be completed, particularly in the area of geology and soils, and this information must be provided within a timeframe that is reasonable to allow for adequate federal agency review before an EIS [environmental impact statement] is initiated.”
