Lawyers for Washington Gas Light (WGL), FERC and Dominion presented oral arguments over the Cove Point LNG terminal Expansion Project to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. WGL argued that the Expansion Project would increase flows of regasified LNG on WGL’s distribution system, and those flows could cause damage to their equipment. FERC responded by emphasizing that it appropriately and thoroughly addressed WGL’s safety concerns. Dominion and the Cove Point LNG importers supplemented FERC’s response, noting that WGL’s system already is compromised regardless of whether the Expansion Project continues to operate and the Cove Point expansion does not cause additional safety concerns for WGL.
