The director of external affairs for BHP Billiton challenges Pacific Environment’s claims that the company’s proposed Cabrillo Port LNG terminal may have a negative impact on air quality and increase consumer costs. Cassidy asserts that the revised draft environmental impact report prepared by the California State Lands Commission indicates that the facility will emit 0.29 million tons of greenhouse gases per year, not 25 million tons, as Pacific Environment’s California program director previously alleged. He also said that consumers would not pay for the cost of building and operating the terminal, adding that an increase in natural gas supply would potentially lower prices for ratepayers. Cassidy’s op-ed may be found in today’s edition of The Ventura County Star. [Free registration necessary]
