Natural gas pipeline expansion to Danbury proposed

Oct 10th, 2013 | By | Category: Business

Spectra Energy Corp., a Houston-based company, owns the 1,100-mile line that runs through Putnam County in New York, Danbury, Brookfield, Newtown and Southbury on its way from New Jersey to Boston. The company is proposing to increase capacity on the line.

“It’s to bring added supply to meet demand,” Marylee Henley, a spokeswoman for Spectra, said Tuesday.

Spectra’s proposal, which must be approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, would mean replacing about 8 miles of pipeline between Southeast, N.Y., to the Interstate 84/Route 7 interchange in Danbury. The pipeline now is 26 inches in diameter; the new pipeline would be 42 inches.
