The financial press amusingly tries to spin Kinder Morgan’s
suspension yesterday of its Palmetto petroleum products pipeline as a positive.
Meanwhile, Sabal Trail still needs stopping even after

and remember KMI is in bed with Sabal Trail on
on the Jacksonville Expansion Project (JEP) from Suwannee County, FL to Jacksonville,
FERC Docket No. CP15-144.

This meeting format sounds like the Open Houses Sabal Trail held to snow and bully landowners.

and for Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle
to oppose Sabal Trail like they just said they oppose the Palmetto Project.

Four pipeline projects surround Atlanta, and Georgia’s governor won’t comment.
Spectra’s Andrea Grover did, though, saying the Albany compressor station would be no louder than “a modern-day dishwasher.”

John Carlton looks over a gopher tortoise hole a few feet away from a 1954 easement for an 8 inch natural gas line on his property at Morrison Pines Plantation in Moultrie. The planned Sabel Trail pipeline would run 50 feet over from the existing line. Carlton is undecided on the proposal.
