Dates and locations have not changed –Sabal Trail Transmission

Sabal Trail did all that was strictly required by FERC, so quit your whining, basically. The only new information is the list of newspapers STT used for advertising. People didn’t quit complaining, so later STT added a makeup meeting in Moultrie.

Filed with FERC 2 December 2013, Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC submits its Response to Comments Seeking Open House Meeting Information for the Sabal Trail Project under Docket No. PF14-1.

And only their parent companies Spectra Energy and NextEra have substantial assets beyond what they need to install this one pipeline. So what happens if it blows up? What stops the shell companies from going bankrupt like “Freedom Industries” did in West Virginia after polluting the water supply for 300,000 people?
