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.

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

Northeast Supply Enhancement Project (NESE) Overview & Issues



The NESE project is currently near the end of the “Application & Environmental Review” Federal period.  Williams/Transco submitted their Application on March 27, 2017 and continues to submit information in response to requests from FERC and State agencies (NJDEP, NYSDEC & PADEP).

The next anticipated Federal action will be the Certificate of Public Convenience & Necessity, expected anytime between late February and late April 2019.

Comments pointing out issues with the applications have delayed the process, but FERC is still expected to issue the Certificate.  The Draft Environmental Impact Statement was expected in October/November 2017, and it was not issued until March 23, 2018.  The Final Environmental Impact Statement was issued on January 25, 2019.

Applications for water permits from NJDEP were received in Trenton on June 20, 2018, and the NJDEP held one hearing on November 5, 2018 at Franklin High School.  We still expect them to hold at least one more hearing, but it has not been scheduled.  Legally, NJDEP has one calendar year after 6/20/18 to grant or deny these permit applications, but Williams/Transco anticipates receiving them in April 2019.

Above is the timeline for the NESE project that shows prior activity as well as anticipated future actions.  Also attached are documents explaining the actions by FERC as well as the NJDEP that allow for public review & input. 


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