Intervener status granted past deadline

By Cyndi Sellers

Cameron LNG has been granted intervener status in the Venture Global LNG permit application by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commis-sion. Cameron LNG asked the FERC to grant this status on July 11, 2018. The deadline to file motions to intervene in the Calcasieu Pass LNG application was Oct. 9, 2015, but the FERC said “motions to intervene on environmental grounds are deemed timely if filed during the comment period of the draft Environmental Impact Statement,” which ended Aug. 13.

According to the FERC notice, “Cameron LNG states that it has an interest in the proceedings due to the proximity of the proposed facilities to Cameron LNG on the Calcasieu Pass Ship Channel.”

Unlike the commenters who filed opinions during the public comment period, interveners can participate outside the comment period and even ask for a rehearing after the Commission takes action.

Venture Global had opposed adding an intervener so long after the deadline, noting that Magnolia LNG and Lake Charles LNG were granted intervener status in a timely manner and would have the same concerns as Cameron LNG.
