FERC Vacates Authorization for Broadwater Energy’s LNG Import Terminal

On Friday, FERC issued an order vacating authorization for construction and operation of Broadwater Energy’s proposed LNG import terminal, which was to be located in Long Island Sound off Long Island, N.Y.  Broadwater notified FERC in March 2012 that it would not go forward with the project and requested vacatur of FERC’s authorization.  FERC’s order vacated the authority for the project but denied a request by the Towns of Riverhead and Southold, N.Y. to vacate the orders authorizing the project, finding no exceptional circumstances justifying vacatur of the orders.  FERC’s order can be found on eLibrary under Docket No. CP06-54.
