Tennessee Gas Project Gets Favorable EA from FERC

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has released an environmental assessment for the Abandonment and Capacity Restoration Project (ACRP) proposed by Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, L.L.C. In its environmental review, FERC staff concluded that construction and operation of the ACRP would not have significant environmental impacts due to the limited overall size of disturbance, implementation of Tennessee Gas Pipeline’s proposed mitigation measures, and additional measures recommended in the environmental assessment. These conclusions are based on an independent review of the ACRP, information provided by Tennessee Gas Pipeline and concerned citizens, and consultations with federal regulatory and resource […]

Williams Partners Updates In-Service Date for Atlantic Sunrise Project

Williams Partners L.P is revising the targeted full in-service for the Atlantic Sunrise Project to mid-2018. The revision is a result of the recently updated schedule of environmental review published Oct. 20 by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and anticipated delays in receipt of certain permits required to commence construction, as well as expected construction within required environmental windows. FERC’s revised environmental review schedule establishes Dec. 30, 2016 as the date for its issuance of the final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Following the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, Williams Partners anticipates beginning construction on […]

CANNON BALL, N.D. (AP) –  Protesters ousted from private land where they tried to block construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline burned vehicles and built roadblocks along a North Dakota state highway where they faced off Friday with authorities. Officers with bullhorns commanded the protesters to leave the roadway, but the approximately two dozen people stood in defiance with their arms in the air.

Environmental Review of Line 3 Enbridge Pipeline Project to Begin

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A decision was made today by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission to begin a comprehensive environmental review of Enbridge Energy’s proposed replacement for the company’s Line 3 pipeline. The decision was issued after the Commission denied motions filed by several environmental organizations that would have further delayed review of the project, which will replace a nearly 60-year-old line that delivers crude oil to refineries in Minnesota and nearby states with a pipeline built with state of the art materials and leak-prevention technology. The pipeline will be rerouted and rebuilt between Clearbrook and Superior, […]

Angola, Zambia to Restart Talks On Pipeline Construction

Zambia and Angola are set to resume talks on the construction of a pipeline that would carry petroleum products from oil-rich Angola to major copper producer Zambia, which imports all its petroleum needs, according to a senior Zambian government official. Back in 2012, Zambia’s investment promotion agency said that a Zambia-registered company was planning on building a multi-petroleum product pipeline from Angola to Zambia’s capital, Lusaka, after a 200,000-bpd refinery is completed in Angola. The refinery project was expected to be commissioned by the beginning of 2014. Zambia is still interested in the project as it seeks to offset […]

Company Asks Pipeline Protesters to Leave North Dakota Land

CANNON BALL, N.D. (AP) — The developer of the Dakota Access oil pipeline said Tuesday that the dozens of protesters who have camped on company-owned land since the weekend are trespassing and will be prosecuted. Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners said in a statement that it wants all protesters to leave its land in North Dakota immediately and that “lawless behavior will not be tolerated.” American Indians and others who oppose the construction of the four-state oil pipeline set up the new camp of tents and teepees Sunday, moving their long-running protest directly in the project’s […]

Protesters Rally In Canada Against Trans Mountain Pipeline Extension

Approximately one hundred people gathered on Monday in the Canadian capital city of Ottawa to protest against the planned expansion of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline. Billed by rally organizers as “the largest act of youth-led climate civil disobedience in Canadian history,” the mostly student protesters journeyed from the University of Ottawa to Parliament Hill. The marchers carried signs reading “Keep it in the Ground” and unfurled a banner reading “Climate Leaders Don’t Build Pipelines.” Originally it had been reported that up to one hundred protesters were arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) […]
