Orders Denying Certificates

Given months to find them, all FERC could come up with for orders denying certificates was for two liquid natural gas (LNG) facilities. Each did have an associated pipeline request, but neither was for a stand-alone pipeline application. I do thank John Peconom and Kevin Bowman for providing these documents. However, really, is this all there is?

I asked John Peconom of FERC for a list of denied pipeline applications at the Moultrie makeup Sabal Trail Open House 27 January 2014, and again after the Valdosta FERC Scoping Meeting 4 March 2014, and each time Peconom said he would get me a list, including the actual orders denying some pipelines. At the Moultrie FERC Scoping Meeting 5 March 2014, I pointed out to the hundred-or-so attendees that I still hadn’t gotten a list.

After the Moultrie meeting, Kevin Bowman of FERC gave me a slip of paper with this written on it:

Turtle Bayou Gas
CP10-481-000
June 2011

See separate post.

Then John Peconom of FERC sent me an email message with these two links in it:

One of Peconom’s links turns out to be the same docket number as Bowman gave me, so FERC has finally supplied only two docket numbers for two denied projects.

Peconom’s other link, like Bowman’s docket number, is for a natural gas facility, KeySpan LNG, L.P., also with an associated pipeline, by Algonquin Gas Transmission LLC, which was also denied, 5 July 2005 (see separate post).

However, neither denial was for a stand-alone pipeline application.
