Gas line may go over land, under cove in Salem


Asked about the route past the LNG tank and under Collins Cove, Furniss said: “It’s one of the possibilities. I can’t say that is the preferred route.”

Whatever Spectra’s preference, the final decision will be made by FERC, the federal agency that oversees the project, officials said.

The Salem News was not able to reach a spokesman for Spectra Energy.

Footprint has filed plans to build a 670-megawatt, $800 million natural gas plant at Salem Harbor Station. The company is scheduled to close the current coal- and oil-fired plant next May. Footprint said it intends to demolish buildings and clean up the property and open its new natural gas plant in June 2016.
