Correction

In a story published May 3, “San Bruno Settlement Talks Break Down, PG&E CEO Says” (see Daily GPI, May 3), the fifth paragraph was incorrect. That paragraph should read: CFO Kent Harvey said PG&E would “continue to expect to need roughly $1-1.2 billion of equity for the year, excluding any fines or penalties beyond the $200 million we’ve already accrued.

Industry Briefs

Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line (Transco) has filed an application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to build a $182 million expansion to meet growing natural gas demand in New York City and the Rockaways. The Rockaway Delivery Lateral Project would provide 647,000 Dth/d of gas delivery capacity to National Grid’s distribution system in Brooklyn and Queens, NY; targeted in service date in late 2014. The project is targeted for service in the second half of 2014. The Transco and National Grid facilities would interconnect with National Grid’s proposed 26-inch diameter lateral. The 3.2-mile, 26-inch diameter Rockaway Delivery Lateral would consist of 2.9 miles of offshore pipeline and 0.3 miles of onshore pipeline. The small pipeline would pass under Jacob Riis Park in the Rockaways portion of Queens and under Jamaica Bay to a new meter and regulator station on the decommissioned airfield Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. Jacob Riis Park and the airfield are part of the Gateway National Recreation Center. President Obama signed a bill allowing for Transco’s expansion (see NGI, Dec. 3, 2012).
