FERC Certificate Proceeding Projects in Process:

Committed to Excellence.

Expanding the interstate pipeline system allows low-priced and abundant natural gas to reach high-demand regions and new consumers. We remain positioned to play a key role in the ongoing build-out of necessary energy infrastructure in the Marcellus Shale geographic formation in the Appalachian Basin. Our extensive pipeline system and storage facilities are geographically situated to provide valuable connectivity to a number of major interstate pipelines and producers in the Northeast, Midwest and Eastern Canada.

Strategically Located.

Empire Pipeline is a FERC-regulated interstate pipeline system that generally transports natural gas from various receipt points in southern New York and at the Pennsylvania border to various local distribution companies, end-users and other interstate pipelines in Western and Central New York and Canada.

Empire Pipeline started operations in 1993 as a 157-mile natural gas transmission pipeline that stretched from the Canadian Border at Chippawa to Oswego County, New York. In 2008, the 77-mile Empire Connector Pipeline was placed into service, adding a southern mainline that joined Empire to Millennium Pipeline at Corning, New York. In November 2011, the 15-mile Tioga County Extension was constructed, extending the Empire Connector to producer-gathering systems located in Tioga County, Pennsylvania. In late 2015, the 17-mile Tuscarora Lateral was placed into service, bridging the gap between National Fuel Supply Corporation’s Tuscarora Compressor Station in Steuben County, New York and the Tioga County Extension.
