PORTLAND, ME, May 7, 2015 (Bangor Daily News) -Managers of the shuttered Great Northern Paper mill were ordered in February to pay $9.2 million to a natural gas supplier, with half the payment covering fuel the East Millinocket mill owners promised to buy, but never did.

The arbitration award granted by attorney Peter DeTroy stems from an agreement the mill owners reached in 2012 to buy compressed natural gas delivered by truck from the Massachusetts-based Xpress Natural Gas, or XNG.

XNG claimed that it invested $4.5 million to buy equipment to prepare for the conversion of the mill's boiler systems to also burn natural gas.
