Empire State Showdown: The NatGas Battle for New York

New York has stymied natural gas development for years, beginning with a ban on high-volume hydraulic fracturing and continuing attempts to shut the door to new pipeline infrastructure. Industry increasingly has taken notice, with a battle underway in the courts, political circles and public opinion.

NGI's 16-page Special Report examines the evolution of New York's stalled natural gas market and the impacts on producers, consumers and Northeast markets. As the state digs in against unconventional exploration and pipeline development, the situation is threatening infrastructure projects, not only at home, but also in surrounding states.

What's at stake? Is there a way through the wall? Find out in the Empire State Showdown: The NatGas Battle for New York.

"Now that New York has built a foundation for the renewable energy system of the future, the state must double down by investing in the fight against dirty fossil fuels and fracked gas from neighboring states." -- Governor Andrew Cuomo

"You have to pretty much pass through New York to get to New England, and that’s not going to happen." -- Matt Hoza, BTU

"If these kinds of projects don't go forward, it impacts the midstream companies, the gatherer, the long-haul company and the producers." -- Justin Carlson, Managing Director, East Daley Capital
