FERC Rejects WGL’s Protest in Transco Interconnection Proceeding

Stating that Washington Gas Light Company’s (WGL) protest of a planned interconnection on Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company’s mainline that will permit delivery of regasified LNG from the Elba Island LNG terminal expansion had “no merit,” FERC reaffirmed its previous determination in the Cove Point LNG terminal expansion proceeding that the potential leaks on the WGL system “would not occur on a properly maintained system.” FERC also noted that WGL’s protest of this gas quality issue should have been filed in the Elba Island LNG terminal expansion proceeding. FERC concluded by authorizing the interconnection facilities proposed by Transco. Find FERC’s order in the eLibrary under Docket No. CP09-88.
