In re Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC
Filing Date Type File Action Taken Summary 08/10/2018 Order Download Public interest groups' request for rehearing denied. 11/13/2017 Request for Rehearing Download Request for rehearing, rescission of certificate, and stay filed. Rehearing Sought of FERC Approval of Atlantic Coast Natural Gas Pipeline. Environmental and community groups filed a request for rehearing and rescission of FERC’s authorization for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a natural gas pipeline running through West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina. The environmental groups also asked for a stay of the project. Among the errors asserted by the environmental groups were a failure to adequately assess the project’s reasonably foreseeable greenhouse gas emissions and climate change impacts and a failure to adequately consider all reasonable direct and indirect impacts and cumulative impacts, including the upstream and downstream impacts associated with gas development and compressor stations.
