NED PETITION WITHDRAWAL ANTICIPATED
"On April 21, 2016, the Department of Public Utilities (“Department”) granted a request made by Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company (“Company”) to suspend any further action in its survey petition cases, D.P.U. 16-01/02/03. The suspension of any further action is due to a Company press release issued on April 20, 2016, in which the Company stated that it has suspended further work and expenditures on the Northeast Energy Direct (“NED”) Project. As a result of the “stay” of any further action, the Department has terminated all deadlines in the survey petition cases, including the May 6, 2016 deadline to file written comments. No further action by any affected property owner or public commenter is necessary at this time. It is anticipated that the Company will withdraw its petitions in the above-referenced matters."
