The Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC filed on January 28 a petition with the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals asking that the Court grant rehearing en banc (before the full Fourth Circuit) on the successful challenge that a group of ABRA members made against the Forest Service permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP).
A study released this week concludes that should the Atlantic Coast Pipeline ever be built its affiliated utility customers will have difficulty in convincing state regulators to pass on the project’s costs to utility customers. In short, “the project does not represent good value to the ratepayer.”
“The Vanishing Need for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline” was released by Oil Change International and the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis.
Cheryl LaFleur, a member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) who was the lone dissenter in the 2-1 approval of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, announced January 31 that she will not seek reappointment to the Commission when her current term expires in June.
