Algonquin Abandonment

Abandonment of Compressor Units

In FERC Docket CP18-23-000, Algonquin sought FERC approval to abandon Units 1 and 2 as soon as March 2018.

Algonquin’s Application advised FERC of the following:

  1. The total current certified horsepower at the Burrillville Compressor Station is 37,900 HP. If Units 1 and 2 were abandoned, the certificated horsepower for the station would be 32,500 HP.
  2. Algonquin assured FERC that Units 1 and 2 were no longer needed to meet Algonquin’s firm service obligations.
  3. Algonquin admitted that Units 1 and 2 were “outdated facilities.”
