FERC Rejects WGL Protest Regarding Impacts of Regasified LNG in Transco/Elba Express Proceeding

FERC issued an order today rejecting Washington Gas Light’s rehearing request regarding FERC’s prior approval of a new interconnection between Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line and Elba Express, a new sendout pipeline from the Elba Island LNG terminal. Finding that WGL’s concerns regarding regasified LNG from Elba Island reaching its system in significant concentrations are “unsupported (and unquantified),” FERC determined that allowing WGL’s “restrictive” gas quality requirements to control Transco’s specifications “would be detrimental to the public interest.” The order is available in the FERC eLibrary in Docket No. CP09-88-001.
