Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline
March 11, 2016
Veresen Inc. (“Veresen”) (TSX: VSN) has received an order from
the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) denying the applications of Jordan Cove LNG and
Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline (“Pacific Connector”) seeking authorization for the construction and
operation of a liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) export terminal and natural gas pipeline. Specifically, the
FERC stated that the public benefits of Pacific Connector do not outweigh the potential for adverse
impacts on landowners and communities.
“Clearly, we are extremely surprised and disappointed by the FERC decision,” said Don Althoff,
President and CEO of Veresen. “The FERC appears to be concerned that we have not yet demonstrated
sufficient commercial support for the projects. We will continue to advance negotiations with customers
to address this concern.”
Jordan Cove LNG and Pacific Connector will file a request for a rehearing of the decision.
Jordan Cove LNG is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Veresen. Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline is owned
equally by a subsidiary of Veresen and a subsidiary of The Williams Companies, Inc.
