Good news here, possibly 3,000 construction jobs could be created if Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. receives approval to construct a new gas pipeline, which will run from the NY/MA border, head north through Franklin and Worcester County, and end in Dracut MA. “TGP is looking to install a 36-inch line through Massachusetts to transport gas from traditional and developing supply regions, including the Marcellus and Utica shale deposits in the Northeast.”
Several towns have been notified and all seem receptive in seeing this project break ground and hopefully completed by 2018. I believe Pres. Obama mentioned a goal during his most recent SOTU about converting some of our vehicles to run on natural gas, so this project won’t be held up like Keystone XL and I doubt much resistance from anyone.
Keep fracking boys!
