New England Grid Operator Moves to Address Potential LNG Supply Disruption

ISO New England, operator of the region’s power grid, filed provisions at FERC to govern grid operations in the event of a significant disruption of LNG supplies used by Boston-area power generators.  The action was taken in response to the recent cancellation of imported LNG cargoes from Yemen to Distrigas’ LNG terminal at Everett, Mass., due to a militant attack on the Yemeni gas supply line.  The ISO’s filing can be found in FERC’s eLibrary under Docket No. ER12-1809.
