The DEM alleges that the Captain of the Port’s decision was arbitrary and capricious, the Coast Guard’s procedures violate that National Environmental Policy Act and are deficient and unreasonable, and the Coast Guard’s treatment of “resource gaps” in the current Weaver’s Cove LNG proposal are “factually inaccurate and unreasonable.” The DEM's filing is available in the FERC eLibrary under Docket No. CP04-36.
