CERA Reports LNG Availability for Heating Season Limited

With hurricane-related shut-ins damping down nearly 7% of the Gulf of Mexico’s yearly natural gas production, liquefied natural gas (LNG) may be a “supply of last resort” for the coming winter heating season, according to an analysis by Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA). However, additional LNG imports may not be available because of global competition, the Massachusetts-based consultant reported.

The Georgia Public Service Commission has approved a plan to establish a provider of last resort (POLR) to allow natural gas customers disconnected for non-payment to reconnect their service. The commission chose Florida-based marketer Infinite Energy Inc. as the POLR, overcoming what was thought to be strong support for the frontrunners, considered to be Atlanta Gas Light, Georgia Natural Gas Services and Scana Energy. In a vote of 3-2, with Commissioners Lauren “Bubba” McDonald Jr. and Stan Wise voting “no,” the PSC’s proposal would have customers paying a $150 deposit to be reconnected. However, the customers would not have to make payments on any past due balances owed to other marketers before being reconnected. Customers would pay 10 cents above Infinite’s current market rate and be charged a $11.95 monthly customer service charge for the service. The GPSC last week also approved new electricity rates for Georgia Power Co., resulting in a $354 million reduction in the company’s revenues over the next three years. The ruling came despite the utility’s request for a rate hike totaling $103 million in additional revenues over the next five years. The reduction represents a decrease of about $1.40 for the average residential customer’s monthly bill. The commission vote was 4-1, with Commissioner Robert Baker voting no. Had the GPSC approved the rate increase over five years, residential rates would have increased by 1.2% per year on average.
