Sparrows Point LNG Project Denied CZMA Consistency By Maryland

July 16, 2007

Following AES’ rejection of the State of Maryland’s request that the developer stay the federal CZMA consistency review period for its proposed LNG terminal at Sparrows Point, the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) denied the project’s consistency “on the grounds that AES has not provided sufficient information necessary for the State to make a federal consistency determination.” AES may request that the U.S. Secretary of Commerce override Maryland’s decision by finding that the project is in fact consistent with the Coastal Zone Management Act or is necessary for national security purposes. MDE’s letter is available in the FERC eLibrary in Docket No. CP07-62.
