The Facts (Brazoria County, Texas) reports today that the United States Coast Guard (USCG) is finalizing marine security arrangements for LNG vessels as the Freeport LNG import terminal nears start-up. According to the news report, USCG personnel expect restrictions on boat traffic within a 1,000-meter radius around LNG tankers transiting to the Freeport LNG terminal to last up to three hours initially.

Separately, The Facts also reports that Freeport LNG has been negotiating with Freeport’s chief of police to provide extra security patrols during elevated security periods. The terminal is sited on nearby Quintana Island, but that small community does not have its own police force. Under the terms proposed, Freeport LNG would pay for a new patrol boat and overtime for police officers to patrol on land.
