ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The developer of a $750 million natural gas pipeline from Pennsylvania into New York is threatening to seize land from reluctant landowners through eminent domain.

A letter obtained by the Albany Times Union tells landowners who have refused to sell rights-of-way for the Constitution Pipeline that they have until Wednesday to accept offered prices. After that, developers will take them to court to force such sales for possibly less money.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) _ Federal energy regulators have approved a $700 million pipeline project designed to bring cheap Marcellus Shale natural gas from Pennsylvania into high-priced markets in New England and New York.

 The project's backers said Wednesday that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's approval means the 124-mile Constitution Pipeline could be built and operational by next winter, if it gets the remaining regulatory approvals from Pennsylvania, New York and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in a timely fashion.

A small but passionate group of career vineyard farmers and winery owners had one united message to deliver to Albany Wednesday.

The proposed pipeline would run 124 miles of 30-inch pipe. It would start in Susquehanna County, pass into New York and cut through Broome and Delaware counties on its way to connect with the already existing Tennessee Gas Pipeline in Shoharie County.

Both sides at the meeting were passionate. People spoke for over two hours.

The public forum was on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC’s draft environmental impact study of the proposed pipeline.

Jenna Flanagan reports on the community debate over a development that would see natural gas reserves stored in the salt caverns at Seneca Lake.

Arlington Storage, a company acquired by Inergy Midstream (now known as Crestwood Midstream since Oct. 7 2013), would operate this storage project. Natural gas from other states (where hydraulic fracturing is allowed) would be pumped in via underground pipes and stored in the caverns 2,000 feet below the surface.
