New York Poised to Close Last Coal-fire Power Plant

LCG, December 4, 2019--The last operating coal-fired power plant in New York is moving toward closure shortly. Last month, Somerset Operating Company, a subsidiary of Riesling Power LLC, submitted a request to the New York State Public Service Commission (NYSPSC) to waive the state's required, 180-day notice to close the Somerset Station, allowing the facility to be retired on February 15, 2020. Closure is contingent on approvals by both NYSPSC and the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), which will evaluate if it will cause an adverse effect on grid reliability.

Deep Sea Pipeline from Iran to India

LCG, March 19, 2002-India may receive natural gas from Iran by way of a deepsea pipeline.

While plans for an onshore pipeline through Pakistan are still dominant, studies are being undertaken by Italian companies Snamprogetti and Saipem in order to determine whether or not a 2000 kilometer underwater pipeline will be practical. It would be built in the Arabian Sea, skirting Pakistan's shoreline.

Australian company BHP is conducting the onshore pipeline study, considering carefully the security risk of its passage through Pakistan.

The onshore pipeline would allow Iran to sell gas to Pakistan as well and is estimated to cost about $3.5 billion.

Pakistan approves of both plans, and Iran reports that it has a good relationship with both India and Pakistan.
