Natural Gas Production at Record High,
but Delivery Pipelines in Short Supply
New York City’s need for natural gas continues to grow as more homes and businesses convert from oil to natural gas heat. These conversions, combined with continued economic growth, is projected to increase demand for natural gas by 10% over the next 10 years. Unfortunately, the current regional network of pipelines is inadequate to meet demand. National Grid – one of two energy utilities in NYC – is therefore strongly advocating for the construction of a new pipeline called the Northeast Supply Enhancement Project, or NESE.
