KENNEDY DEMANDS FEDERAL REGULATORS HALT WEYMOUTH COMPRESSOR CONSTRUCTION

Washington, D.C. – In a letter to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Congressman Joe Kennedy III today demanded an immediate halt on construction of the Weymouth Compressor Station. Citing reduced market demand for the project, Kennedy wrote that these changing circumstances required FERC to issue a Stop Work Order and review previous approvals.

“Federal energy regulators should have never approved construction of the Weymouth Compressor Station and decreased market demand only underscores their initial mistake. With at least two companies claiming the station is unnecessary to meet customer demand, federal regulators must immediately halt construction and review outdated, faulty approvals. It is time for these regulators to listen to the voices and concerns of the citizens and community who will be impacted most by their oversight.”
