In 2010 the Iroquois Gas Transmission Corporation proposed a 3 foot diameter, 66 mile long pipeline to span a gap in the distribution system of natural gas from the Marcellus Shale to New England and northeastern Canada to "serve the northeast market." Calling it the NYMarc Pipeline, the Iroquois Gas website projected its completion for 2015. While being transported through a welded pipeline, natural gas needs to be constantly pressurized. Football field sized compressor stations pressurize the gas with diesel fueled turbines, emitting polluting hydrocarbon clouds 24/7.
