The developers of the FutureGen project are ready to announce their choice for the billion dollar project, but the Department of Energy wants them to hold off.

Odessa is one of four cities vying for the project.

FutureGen is supposed to announce the winner on Tuesday.

However, the Department of Energy wrote the FutureGen developers complaining the announcement was planned without consulting them, and they may not be ready for it.

NewsWest Nine spoke with developers on Wednesday.

They say the announcement will go on as planned.
