Importance of Gas Standards Grows Along With LNG

Gas producers who’ve traveled around the country poking holes in the ground know that the flavor of what they get varies from basin to basin; some gas is wetter, some has a higher heat content, etc. Over the years since the manufactured gas industry evolved into the natural gas industry, consumers — residential, industrial, process, power generation — and their equipment have grown accustomed to the flavor of gas most prevalent in their particular region. One industry expert described this as an “accident of history.”

ANR Blows Guardian Full of Holes at FERC

ANR Pipeline unloaded an arsenal at the Guardian Pipelineproject yesterday in a protest and request for dismissal filed withFERC. If Guardian is built, it would be a bypass of ANR, resultingin 650 MDth/d of firm transportation capacity being turned back tothe Coastal subsidiary. That turnback capacity would mean a loss of$54 million in annual revenue, ANR said, of which $26 million couldbe avoided if Wisconsin Gas accepted a competing proposal presentedby ANR. ANR is requesting it be allowed to charge Wisconsin Gas anexit fee if Guardian is approved.
