The long saga of the Weymouth natural gas compressor station — proposed by the Canadian energy giant Enbridge to get natural gas to Canada — continues.

A state permit, which would have been a major step toward starting construction has been delayed — again.

WBUR discovered last week that at least three utility companies planning to use Enbridge's pipelines say they don't even need the compressor to get gas to their customers.

To discuss all that and give a primer of what the compressor is and does, WBUR Earthwhile reporter Miriam Wasser joined Morning Edition host Bob Oakes.

This segment aired on November 5, 2019.
