EXPERT: SNG Plant raw deal for ratepayers

Testimony was filed with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission in opposition to a murky, risk shifting plan for a coal-gasification plant proposed by New York- based Leucadia Corp. for Rockport, IN. The plant is intended to convert coal into pipeline quality gas, called substitute natural gas or SNG. However, ratepayers are not paying for service or delivery of the SNG to customers.
