PLAN-NE Granite Bridge Factsheet 3-8-18 (for printing)

Liberty Utilities’ new major infrastructure expansion proposal – Granite Bridge – includes a 27-mile, 16-inch, high pressure (950 psi) pipeline along the Route 101 right-of-way in New Hampshire and a large LNG storage and liquefaction facility in Epping, NH.

The proposed pipeline, running from Stratham through Exeter, Brentwood, Epping, Raymond, Candia, and Auburn, and terminating in Manchester, would connect the Maritimes & Northeast pipeline, which is along the coast, to the TGP/Kinder Morgan Concord lateral.

Because the project is sited solely within a state-designated (and state-owned) “Energy Infrastructure Corridor”, this project would not involve eminent domain takings.

We encourage you to contact us if you are interested in following developments as approval processes get underway. The project will be reviewed by the NH Public Utilities Commission and the NH Site Evaluation Committee, but not by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The company has created a website for this project with the information it would like to convey to the public.
