[ARCHIVED] Algonquin Gas - Access Northeast Project: MA Siting Board Hearing

The Massachusetts Energy Facilities Siting Board (the “MA Siting Board”) has scheduled an opportunity for the public to receive updated information concerning the Access Northeast Project (“Access Northeast”) which is under consideration by Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC (“Algonquin”), to ask questions and to provide input to the Siting Board. As you may recall, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (the “FERC”) is the primary permitting authority with regard to Access Northeast. The MA Siting Board participates in FERC proceedings involving natural gas pipelines in order to represent the interests of the Commonwealth and its residents. The details concerning the Siting Board’s public hearings are noted below and shown on the attached. In addition, the FERC is expected to schedule Scoping Meetings in Massachusetts in mid to late May. Details concerning FERC’s Scoping Meetings will be forwarded to you as soon as the information becomes available.
