PSE&G Denies Pilgrim Pipeline Access to Rights-of-Way
Pilgrim Pipeline was denied access to PSE&G right of way by the PSE&G Corporate Lands Division and now senior leadership has upheld that decision. Pilgrim had asked the public utility for use of their easements to install two brand new oil pipelines across Northern New Jersey. Pilgrim Pipeline LLC is a private utility that wants to ship crude oil and refined petroleum products. They are not designated as a public utility and do not have eminent domain rights.
This announcement by PSEG is a major blow to the project, as the current mapping shows extensive use of existing PSEG rights-of-way.
