The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) exclusively authorizes the construction of new interstate natural gas facilities. FERC is also the lead federal agency responsible for conducting environmental reviews of interstate natural gas projects in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act.
On March 3, 2015, FERC issued a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity following a comprehensive, multi-year review of the AIM Project. The certificate (pdf, 610 KB) authorizes Algonquin to construct and operate the project’s facilities in accordance with the conditions set forth by FERC.
In January 2017, Algonquin placed the AIM project fully into service.
Algonquin filed the certificate application for the project on February 28, 2014. The AIM Project was assigned docket number CP14-96-000.
