NY proposes rules for natural gas fueling, storage

The state Department of Environmental Conservation has proposed regulations for new liquefied natura

ALBANY — The state Department of Environmental Conservation has proposed regulations for new liquefied natural gas storage facilities and truck fueling stations.

Commissioner Joe Martens says Thursday that lower emissions from burning natural gas as a fuel "will provide significant benefits to the environment and public health" and will create jobs.

The move comes as New York remains under a 5-year-old moratorium on the shale gas drilling that has produced abundant, low-cost natural gas.

DEC says the early permits are likely to be issued for smaller facilities supplying fuel to long-haul and fleet trucks that use natural gas as a cheaper substitute for diesel.

Public hearings on the regulations will be in Syracuse on Oct. 16 and Albany on Oct. 30. Public comments will be taken until Nov. 4.
