Veresen Inc. announced that Jordan Cove LNG and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline have received a revised notice of schedule for the environmental review of the project, from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
The revised schedule indicates that the final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will now be issued on 12 June 2015. The original date of issue was 27 February.
Don Althoff, President and CEO of Veresen, expressed his disappointment with the delay: "Given the delay from the FERC in issuing our Draft EIS, we had anticipated that the first schedule was under pressure. While we are disappointed in the revised schedule, we are not surprised or concerned, and look forward to receiving our final EIS from the FERC in June."
Given the change in the schedule for issuing the final EIS, Veresen is currently reviewing the project schedule.
