The Gas Company (Company) filed answers to Blue Planet Foundation’s and Sierra Club’s protests filed at FERC on the Company’s proposal to import LNG into Hawaii. The Company’s response states (1) that its proposal is under FERC’s exclusive jurisdiction, (2) that environmental review is not required at this time and, in any event, the environmental impacts associated with the proposal are insignificant, and (3) that FERC is not required to consider the potential impacts associated with future, currently undeveloped plans that the Company may propose later.
