NGA Responds to FERC/NERC Joint Statement on the Necessity of Everett Marine Terminal

November 14, 2023

This week, FERC Chairman Willie L. Phillips and NERC CEO James B. Robb released a joint statement expressing concern about the potential loss of the Everett Marine Terminal, and the consequences that might have on the region's energy supplies. We commend the FERC and NERC for their continued focus on electric reliability and affordability in the New England power market.
As a trade association representing natural gas utilities (LDCs), interstate pipeline companies, liquefied natural gas (LNG) providers, and others, our position is that the Everett Facility remains a highly valuable resource. The region is highly dependent on natural gas for both home heating and electric power generation and this increasingly interrelated nature of the electric and gas systems is particularly apparent during the high-demand winter periods. To best ensure energy security for the region, Everett should be maintained, until a time when it may be clear that the supply, balancing flexibility, and reliability role of Everett has been firmly supplanted by an installed alternative resource.
