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.

Chevron to Increase Capacity at Sabine Pass LNG Terminal

LCG, December 2, 2005--Cheniere Energy, Inc. announced yesterday that Chevron Global Gas, a unit of Chevron Corporation, has exercised itsoption to increase capacity to 1 Bcf/day at Cheniere's new Sabine Pass Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal. The terms of the original agreement, executed in November 2004, provided for 700 MMcf/day of capacity over a 20-year period to begin no later than July 2009.

The Sabine Pass LNG Terminal is being built near Sabine Pass in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. Construction on the LNG facility began in March 2005.

The LNG terminal will receive LNG tankers and vaporize the LNG into natural gas, which will then be transported into the transmission pipeline network serving much of the Central and Eastern United States. The terminal is designed with a sendout capacity of 2.6 Bcf/day in the first phase, which is scheduled to commence operations in 2008.

In July 2005, Cheniere filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) a second phase for the project that would increase the sendout capacity of Sabine Pass LNG Terminal to 4 Bcf/day. According to Cheniere, the expansion could open between 2009 and 2010.
