ICYMI: Luetkemeyer Statement on Spire STL Pipeline Certificate Extension

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) released a statement regarding an announcement on Friday from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) stating the temporary emergency certificate for the STL Pipeline Project (“STL Pipeline”) will be extended. This will provide critical access to affordable and reliable clean natural gas to allow Missouri families to get safely through the coming winter.

“I’m pleased to see Spire STL’s Pipeline receive an extension until FERC can render their court-ordered decision. Hundreds of thousands of individuals in Missouri will no longer face the threat of losing heat this winter. I look forward to continuing to work with FERC and Spire as we work toward a permanent solution,” said Luetkemeyer.

On November 15th, Congressman Luetkemeyer led a letter to FERC urging an extension of the temporary emergency certificate from December 13th to April 1, 2022. The full letter can be found HERE.
