The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, talked about the Atlantic Sunrise, Mariner East, Hunlock Creek and much more last week.

Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week, as guests, we had Mike Atchie, Public Outreach Business Partner at Williams and Daniel Markind, Esq., Weir and Parnters, LLP.

The Shale Gas News, typically, is broadcast live. On the February 11th show (click above), we covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below):

  • Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline Gets Final Approval by FERC. Williams Partners L.P. (NYSE: WPZ) today reported that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued a certificate of public convenience and necessity authorizing the Atlantic Sunrise expansion project – an expansion of the existing Transco natural gas pipeline to connect abundant Marcellus gas supplies with markets in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern U.S.
  • Mariner East pipeline gets go-ahead from state. The company planning to build a 306-mile pipeline to move propane and other natural gas liquids across southern Pennsylvania says it can begin construction. Sunoco Logistics received permit approvals for the Mariner East 2 pipeline from the Department of Environmental Protection on Monday.
  • Hunlock Creek Power Plant. The old coal-powered energy plant in Hunlock Creek is now providing energy entirely from natural gas. The reason for the change is partly because of federal regulations and partly for efficiency. Over the last five years, UGI spent about $125 million to convert it from a coal-powered plant into a natural gas plant.
