Oil & Gas Activity in New Jersey

There is currently no drilling activity in New Jersey, but there are proposed and existing pipelines. Click on the image below to explore one of these proposals: The Pilgrim Pipeline, 2016.

Limited Data

There is a limited amount of data available about exploratory hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) occurring in New Jersey. We will continue to look for data that can be mapped. However, pipelines are being proposed through the state that will carry fracked oil and gas from other parts of the country to refineries along the coast. Contact us with questions or recommendations.
