In September, MDN told you that Dominion Energy had sold two “merchant” (non-regulated) natural gas-fired electric generating plants for $1.23 billion to Starwood Energy. And at the same time, Dominion announced it was shopping its 50% ownership stake in Blue Racer Midstream (see Dominion Sells 2 Gas-Fired Plants; Blue Racer Midstream For Sale). The sale of the power plants and potential sale of Blue Racer is aimed at helping Dominion pay down debt. The Blue Racer sale is no longer a potential, but a reality. Yesterday Dominion announced it is selling its share in Blue Racer to private equity investment firm First Reserve for $1.5 billion.
