The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has denied rehearing requests on the authorization it issued May 21 for the Alaska Gasline Development Corp. to construct the Alaska LNG project.

FERC received requests for rehearing from the Matanuska-Susitna Borough and from the Center for Biological Diversity and Earthjustice on behalf of Chickaloon Village Traditional Council, Northern Alaska Environmental Center and the Sierra Club (see story in June 28 issue of Petroleum News).

The Matanuska-Susitna Borough request was dated June 19; the Center for Biological Diversity request June 22.

In a July 22 notice, FERC said in the absence of a commission action on requests for rehearing within 30 days from the date the requests were filed, the requests “may be deemed denied.”
