The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved $1.2 billion pipeline to bring cheap Marcellus shale natural gas into New York City.
The approval will allow Texas-based Spectra Energy to begin using the 16-mile line from New Jersye into the city on Nov. 1.
The pipeline can handle up to 800 million cubic feet per day. That's enough for 2 million New York City homes.
The project has drawn some protests.
