Vermont Gas admits it kept regulators in the dark on pipeline cost increase

Posted on March 14, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



MONTPELIER — Vermont Gas Systems officials last year knew the company’s proposed natural gas pipeline through Addison County would cost much more than anticipated, but waited more than five months to tell regulators — even after the Department of Public Service requested that it do so.

This information came to light in recent testimony by Vermont Gas executives in a Public Service Board proceeding to determine whether the company violated board procedure by not providing timely cost updates for Phase I of the Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project.

ADDISON COUNTY — As regulators sort through the fallout of Vermont Gas Systems’ decision last week to cancel its application for its Phase II pipeline and announcement in December of a massive cost hike for Phase I, opponents of the pipeline warn that both events will significantly raise the burden ratepayers will be asked to bear for the Phase I project.

MONTPELIER — The state Supreme Court on Feb. 9 gave the green light to the Public Service Board to launch a wide-ranging second investigation into Vermont Gas Systems’ budgeting practices for Phase I of its Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project.

By granting remand, a process by which a higher court sends a case back to a lower tribunal, the Supreme Court ceded jurisdiction to the Public Service Board to consider whether to alter or revoke its December 2013 approval of the project, a 41-mile pipeline through Chittenden and Addison counties.

ADDISON COUNTY — Reaction to the announcement Tuesday that Vermont Gas Systems would abandon its proposal to build a $105 million pipeline from Middlebury to Ticonderoga, N.Y., was met with a mixture of joy and relief from Addison County residents who would have been directly affected.

“I was delighted because we spent more than two years trying to defeat this project,” said Cornwall Selectman Bruce Hiland.
