» Liberty Utilities update of natural gas pipeline proposal finds 30% spike in cost to accommodate environmental concerns
By KEVIN LANDRIGAN, New Hampshire Union Leader
March 16, 2019
*Note: This article mistakenly characterizes the proposed Granite Bridge Pipeline as a liquefied natural gas (LNG) pipeline. Though there is a large LNG storage facility proposed near the center of the project, the pipeline itself would carry conventional fracked gas in its gaseous state, with liquefaction and re-gasification facilities at the storage tank site.
