LNG Project Opponents Say FERC Acting Inconsistently on Maine LNG Project Applications

In supplemental comments filed with FERC this week, Nulankeyutomonen Nkihtahkomikumon, Save Passamaquoddy Bay-Canada, and Save Passamaquoddy Bay-U.S. suggest that the Commission is not evaluating the circumstances surrounding the Downeast and Calais LNG
February 16, 2010

In supplemental comments filed with FERC this week, Nulankeyutomonen Nkihtahkomikumon, Save Passamaquoddy Bay-Canada, and Save Passamaquoddy Bay-U.S. suggest that the Commission is not evaluating the circumstances surrounding the Downeast and Calais LNG proposals in the same manner. Specifically, the comments argue that FERC’s Draft EIS prepared for the Downeast LNG project did not thoroughly assess the potential environmental impacts of an expansion of the Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline. In contrast, in the Calais LNG proceeding, FERC has stated that a Maritimes expansion is a key component to the project and that it will fully consider such an expansion as it evaluates the environmental impacts of the Calais LNG project. The comments are available in the FERC eLibrary under Docket No. CP07-52.
