The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved Williams’s Transco Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline (ASP). The huge pipeline is set to cut through Pennsylvania, bringing fracked gas to the Dominion Cove Point (DCP) export terminal that is under construction. Without DCP and some other infrastructure, the ASP has no function or purpose; it should not be considered by FERC as an isolated project. The cumulative effects of all the parts must be evaluated together.
For this reason and others, we have filed for a rehearing of the case. Unfortunately, our request for a stay of the project was denied.
