Chattanooga Gas customers enjoy benefits of mistake made by ConocoPhillips

Posted: Updated:

Local customers of Chattanooga Gas will continue to enjoy the full benefits of a $735,000 penalty paid by ConocoPhillips in 2012.

Last week, the energy giant abandoned its effort to get state regulators to eliminate or at least cut the assessment.

ConocoPhillips attorney Tom Midyett last week notified the Tennessee Regulatory Authority the company was withdrawing its request to cut the penalty almost in half. Authority directors have rejected the proposal twice, most recently on June 17.

The Houston-based company ships natural gas to the Invista manufacturing plant in Chattanooga through intermediary Chattanooga Gas. The problem started when no gas was shipped from December 2010 to Jan. 6, 2011.
