Sierra Club filed a protest on The Gas Company’s FERC application to import into Hawaii LNG produced in the continental United States. Sierra Club opposes Gas Company’s request that FERC review only the first phase of the project and requests that FERC prepare an environmental impact statement on all phases of the proposal. Sierra Club’s protest also raises other environmental issues related to alleged increases in natural gas production that would be induced by the project.

Blue Planet Foundation also filed a protest arguing that the application does not provide enough details on the comprehensive LNG import plan and that the proposal will continue Hawaii’s dependence on imported fossil fuels. Sierra Club’s and Blue Planet’s protests can be found on eLibrary under Docket No. CP12-498.
