FERCon Monday issued a favorable Environmental Assessment (EA) for a new horizontal natural gas withdrawal at Columbia Gas Transmission LLC’s Pavonia storage field in Ashland and Richland counties, OH. The new well would help maintain late-season performance at the Pavonia field, restoring about 10 MMcf/d of delivery. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission staff concluded that construction of the project, occurring on a 3.6 acre area and involving a couple hundred feet of new pipe, would not “significantly [affect] the quality of the human environment.”
