Broadwater LNG Answers Towns’ Request that FERC Vacate Order Authorizing Project

Broadwater Energy LLC has filed an answer to a letter submitted to FERC by the towns of Riverhead and Southold, N.Y. The letter requested that the Commission vacate its orders granting certificate authority for Broadwater’s LNG project and denying rehearing of the matter. Submission of the letter followed Broadwater’s request to FERC earlier this month to vacate the company’s certificate authority without vacating the orders that grant the authority. In its answer to the towns’ letter, Broadwater argues that the Commission vacates its orders “only in exceptional circumstances based upon compelling reasons,” and asserts that no such circumstances or reasons exist in the proceeding. Find the answer in FERC’s eLibrary under Docket No. CP06-54.
