From 3 LNG Terminal Developments!
Issued 2016 August 17
Order Dismissing Dockets
“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. … Because Downeast has not demonstrated meaningful progress in the pre-filing review process toward a single, integrated proposal, its pending import application and bidirectional import/export pre-filing proceedings have become stale and warrant dismissal and termination without prejudice.” [Bold emphasis added.]
