  • FERC has issued an order granting Port Dolphin Energy’s request to vacate its certificate authority to construct and operate the onshore portion of a pipeline which would interconnect to Port Dolphin’s proposed deepwater port LNG import terminal for offshore Tampa, Fla. In requesting the vacatur, Port Dolphin explained that due to changed market conditions it has been unable to negotiate commercial contracts for the proposed deepwater port, and therefore, it intends to abandon its plans to construct the onshore pipeline.
