Farmington natural gas expansion up in the air

Farmington town officials are expected to discuss the uncertainty that now faces a planned natural gas expansion that has been delayed.

The Morning Sentinel reported that the discussion is being spurred by the University of Maine at Farmington learning that Summit Natural Gas of Maine cannot bring natural gas by 2016 and that it is now considering alternative energy sources.

Summit executives previously said that UMF was needed as an anchor customer to support the natural gas expansion, the newspaper noted.

“It just points out the uncertainty of natural gas coming to this area,” Farmington Town Manager Richard Davis told the Morning Sentinel, adding that the uncertainty is appearing to be spurred by Summit's delay and not any action on UMF's part.
