Court ruling favors Islander East project.

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals last month ruled that the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (CTDEP) had no legal basis for denying a water quality certificate to the Islander East Pipeline Company, L.L.C., for the interstate natural gas pipeline project that Islander East proposes to construct across Long Island Sound.

"We believe that the court made a fair and well-reasoned decision that clears the way for the CTDEP and Islander East to work together to address the few remaining issues that need to be addressed prior to construction," said Bill Yardley, vice president, Duke Energy Gas Transmission, a partner with KeySpan in Islander East.

The CTDEP is now required by the court to conduct a further review of Islander East's application and to either provide record evidence in support of a denial of to clear the way for the Islander East project to move forward in either case in the next 75 days.
