Industry Brief

FERC said it had requested authorization by Southwest Gas Storage Co. to abandon in place a 1,110-horsepower compressor unit and related equipment at its Waverly Storage Compressor Station in Morgan County, IL (Docket No. CP14-46). The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said Southwest wants to abandon the unit "because it does not anticipate needing it at its present location for the foreseeable future [and] it has become increasingly expensive to maintain." FERC said the unit has not been used for over twelve months, and that it would cost Southwest $8.5 million to replicate the compressor unit elsewhere. If no motion to intervene is filed with 60 days the proposal will be deemed authorized.
