The Project is made up of three separate, but inter-related interstate natural gas pipeline projects: the Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company Hillabee project, the Sabal Trail Transmission LLC project, and the Florida Southeast Connection LLC project. The Project consists of approximately 685 miles of pipeline and appurtenant facilities and is designed to deliver natural gas to Florida. In large part, the natural gas will be used to generate electricity for Florida consumers. FERC issued orders granting certificates of public convenience and necessity authorizing the Project sponsors to construct and operate the Project facilities in 2016. The Sierra Club, among other parties, sought judicial review of FERC’s orders certificating the Project.
