Transco Asks US Court To Clarify Stay For Atlantic Sunrise Natural Gas Pipeline
Platts reported: Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line has asked the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to clarify the reach of a temporary administrative stay of the certificate authorization for the Atlantic Sunrise natural gas pipeline project the court ordered Monday. In a Tuesday morning filing, Transco warned that if the stay applied beyond Pennsylvania — including to parts of the project already in service — it could impede service to existing Transco customers. The DC Circuit Monday granted a temporary stay, pausing construction to give the court time to consider an emergency stay request that environment groups filed (Allegheny Defense Project, et al., v. US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission). The court Tuesday ordered the petitioners to respond to Transco’s motion for clarification by 2 pm the same day.
CMA CGM Is The First Shipping Company To Choose Liquefied Natural Gas For Its Biggest Ships
AJOT reported: On the occasion of the COP23 in Bonn (Germany), the CMA CGM Group, a world leader in maritime transport, is pleased to announce its decision to equip its 9 future ships of 22,000 TEUs (Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit), delivered in 2020, with engines using liquefied natural gas. CMA CGM is becoming the first shipping company in the world to equip giant containerships with this type of motorisation, thus pursuing its firm commitment to the protection of the environment and to ocean conservation. These containerships will be LNG-powered – a few percent of marine gas oil will only be used for the ignition in the combustion chamber. By choosing LNG, the CMA CGM Group goes beyond current and future regulations that limit the sulphur cap to 0.5% in 2020. The Group is also fully in line with the Paris Agreement and the ongoing discussions at the international level.
