Yesterday FERC issued a request for additional environmental data to Downeast LNG on several issues ranging from whale strike avoidance plans to air emissions modeling. FERC also addressed vapor dispersion distances, noting that Downeast’s current analysis is “not sufficient” to demonstrate that vapor could not disperse beyond areas under Downeast LNG’s legal control. FERC requests that Downeast LNG file its responses within 20 days and notes that following Downeast LNG’s submission of the required information, “[FERC] will determine the schedule for completion of the final [Environmental Impact Statement].” This appears to delay the issuance of the final EIS beyond the previously set date of September 18, 2009. Find FERC’s request in the eLibrary under Docket No. CP07-52.
