FERC Approves Settlement of Algonquin Gas Quality Issues

Last week FERC endorsed a proposed settlement regarding gas interchangeability issues on the Algonquin Gas Transmission system that establishes more restrictive gas composition specifications. According to FERC’s order, in approving the settlement it balanced safety concerns regarding local distribution companies’ (LDCs) peak-shaving facilities against the assertions of Dominion and StatoilHydro that  the proposed limits of 2.75% nitrogen and 12% ethanes plus would significantly limit global LNG supplies from flowing on Algonquin. Platts LNG Daily [subscription required] provides additional coverage.
