Construction is under way. The AIM Project is being built over two years and will be ready to safely deliver new supplies of much needed domestic natural gas to the Northeast by November 2016.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) exclusively authorizes the construction of new interstate natural gas facilities. FERC is also the lead federal agency responsible for conducting environmental reviews of interstate natural gas projects in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act.
On March 3, 2015, FERC issued a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity following a comprehensive, multi-year review of the AIM Project. The certificate (pdf, 610 KB) authorizes Algonquin to construct and operate the project’s facilities in accordance with the conditions set forth by FERC.
Algonquin filed the certificate application for the project on February 28, 2014. The AIM Project was assigned docket number CP14-96-000. You may visit FERC’s website and enter this docket number to follow the project.
As the project proceeds, we will continue our commitment to responsible development, reliable operations and respectful, ongoing engagement with the communities we serve.
