In New Jersey, the Northeast Supply Enhancement (NESE) Project poses a serious threat to the health, safety & environment of residents, business owners, visitors and wildlife in and around:

  • Franklin Township (Somerset County) & nearby South Brunswick (Middlesex County),
  • Sayreville/Old Bridge (Middlesex County), and
  • the Raritan Bay.

Such facilities have been built on promises of safety and profits to the company, but it will be the local citizens who would bear the brunt of the damaging impact for generations to come.

Bayshore councils around the proposed Raritan Bay Loop passed resolutions opposing NESE in March & April 2019:  Aberdeen, Atlantic Highlands, Hazlet, Highlands, Holmdel, Keansburg, Keyport, Long Branch, Matawan, Middletown, Rumson, Sea Bright, and Union Beach.

Examples:  Monmouth County Freeholders (3/18/19) & Atlantic Highlands (4/22/19)

Join us as we ask our Local, State and Federal governments and regulatory agencies to stop this dangerous and unnecessary project.

Above is the timeline for the NESE project that shows prior activity as well as anticipated future actions.

Check out the NJDEP denial letter (PDF)


  • The NESE project has received their Certificate of Public Convenience & Necessity from FERC (May 3, 2019).

No comments to FERC will make a difference at this point!

The next action that intervenors (groups or individuals) can take is to file a Request for Rehearing by June 1, 2019. (see attachment)


  • The NYSDEC conditionally denied the Water Quality Certification on May 15, 2019.  Williams/Transco submitted a new application to NYSDEC on May 17, 2019.
  • NJDEP denied all water permit applications on June 5, 2019 without prejudice, allowing Williams/Transco to submit new applications.   New applications were sent to the NJDEP on June 10, 2019.


See ACTIONS TO TAKE page for more information and instructions on each of these important action steps.
