  • FERC issued an order today dismissing and terminating Downeast LNG (Downeast) and affiliates’ applications for a bidirectional import/export LNG terminal and associated pipeline facilities near Robbinston, Maine. FERC stated: “Downeast’s project has been before the Commission in one form or another for more than ten years. There has been essentially no progress at all toward completion of an application in the past nine months and Downeast has presented nothing to persuade us that its situation is likely to change in the immediate future.”
