FERC Says Weaver’s Cove Energy Has Not Established Sufficient Site Control for LNG Project

Responding to a request for rehearing filed by both the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the City of Fall River, Mass., FERC determined this morning that Weaver’s Cove Energy, LLC has not established sufficient site control for its LNG import project. Specifically, the Commission noted that it cannot determine who owns the so-called Wedge Lot and whether Weaver’s Cove Energy has satisfied the U.S. Department of Transportation’s exclusion zone regulations. FERC stated that the issue of the ownership of the Wedge Lot should be “addressed by a Massachusetts court under Massachusetts law.” FERC’s order on rehearing is available in the Commission’s eLibrary.
