Sabal Trail Transmission LLC has asked FERC for authorization to begin construction on phase one of the pipeline project by Wednesday. In a filing last week, Sabal Trail, a project of Spectra Energy Corp., NextEra Energy Inc. and Duke Energy, sought authorization to begin a portion of phase one [CP15-17]. The project was certificated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in February (see Daily GPI, Feb. 3). Sabal Trail includes about 500 miles of pipeline, six compressor stations and six meter stations in Alabama, Georgia and Florida to provide up to 1.07 million Dth/d of firm service to Florida. The project is expected to be in service in May 2017.
