Operations

4-24     What polluting materials are expected to be maintained on hand at the facility?  Are there Material Safety Data Sheets available for these items?  If so, please provide them.

4-26     What Hazmat capabilities will be in place at the plant?

4-27     At production, will a constant replenishment of the bump strip be necessary?

4-31     Will the pumping or compressor stations on the pipe line have a condensate knock out system that separates the condensate from the gas?  If not, why not?

4-32     Will the plant itself have a knock out system?  If not, why not?

4-33     What will happen to any of the condensates that are separated from the gas?  Please explain.

4-34     Will the condensate be treated at the plant or returned to the gas pumping station in double walled pipe systems?  Please explain.

4-37     Please explain your proposal for what will be done if the plant is in violation of Town Ordinances, especially as it relates to noise, water, air, and property devaluation.

4-38     Please provide the contingency plans for catastrophic or emergency events.

4-39     Please provide the disaster recovery plans.

4-41     What can the company do, or has it done in the past in regards to its energy projects, to mitigate noise, sight, and air disturbances?

5-8       Please provide detailed information regarding the impacts on biodiversity of noise, the towers, the diesel fuel tanks, the air cooled condensers, the construction site, the new overhead transmission line right of way, the connection to the existing 345 kV line, the construction of the switch yard, the new gas line connection to the newly reconstructed compressor station, the new facility access road, the construction of an underground pipe to a sewer main to the Burrillville sewage treatment plant, and the construction of a 6.8 mile new 345 kV line. 

15-2     Are you aware of any databases that identify natural gas shortages that have occurred in our region over approximately the last 5 years?  If so, please furnish copies and/or electronic links.

17-1     Is there any possibility, no matter how small, that there could be an explosion at the Spectra/Algonquin compressor station which could cause an explosion at the Invenergy plant?  If it is your opinion that this is impossible, please explain.  If it is your opinion that it is in any way possible, please explain the conditions under which this could occur, the likelihood of this occurring and your reasoning.  Also, if this is possible, no matter how unlikely, please calculate the size of the blast area that would be affected by such an explosion.

17-2     Is it at all possible that a problem at the Invenergy plant could cause an explosion at the Spectra/Algonquin compressor station?  If it is your opinion that this is impossible, please explain.  If it is your opinion that it is in any way possible, please explain the conditions under which this could occur, the likelihood of this occurring and your reasoning.  Also, if this is possible, no matter how unlikely, please calculate the size of the blast area that would be affected by such an explosion.

17-3     Please explain/calculate the probability of a certain blast events occurring, including the Algonquin Station exploding, the hydrogen storage tubes or generator igniting, and/or the proposed CREC facility itself exploding.

17-4     Please conduct an ALOHA (Area Locations of Hazardous Atmospheres (“ALOHA”) Model developed by the EPA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) analysis to determine the extent of the impact area of any possible explosion at the Invenergy facility and/or the Spectra/Algonquin facility, no matter how remote the possibility.
