Kevin Elm, project manager for the proposed Beacon Port LNG terminal, says that a quotation  published by the Galveston Daily News “provided some extremely misleading” information regarding the potential environmental and marine impacts of the project. Elm challenged statistics given by Briana Kerstein, the outreach coordinator for Gulf Restoration Network, who said at a recent hearing that the terminal could destroy “the equivalent of nearly 32,000 pounds of red snapper and over half a million pounds of redfish every year.” Elm says the project’s draft Environmental Impact Statement indicates that impact on fisheries will be “minor” and will represent a fraction of one percent of the average harvest in Texas and Louisiana. He further reiterated ConocoPhillips’ commitment to “monitor and mitigate” impacts on fisheries. Elm’s op-ed is available in The Galveston Daily News.
