NOTABLE QUOTE(S):

FERC Office of Energy Projects

"The project would be capable of producing 3 million metric tonnes per annum of LNG and 100 standard cubic feet per day of regasified LNG." [Bold emphasis added.]

PDF filePre-Filing Review for the Downeast LNG Import-Export Project Docket No. PF14-19-000, distributed to the public at the 2014 Sep 16 Downeast LNG Open House in Robbinston (PDF; 958 KB).

WEBMASTER'S COMMENTS: The 100 standard cubic feet per day of regasified LNG that FERC says Downeast LNG would produce is equivalent to the methane output of 6–12 cows.

    • SECRETARY OF THE COMMISSION, FERCSince FERC failed to mail out its Notice of Intent to Prepare an EIS — as Save Passamaquoddy Bay 3-Nation Alliance researcher and webmaster discovered and reported to FERC personnel present at the FERC Scoping Hearing in Robbinston on October 22 — FERC has extended the Scoping Period to end on December 1, rather than the original ending date of November 3.
       
      Note that the Scoping Period in FERC proceedings is actually a "ghost" deadline, since FERC will continue to receive and consider scoping-related comments throughout the permitting process. But, as experience has shown, FERC's "consideration" of such comments is less than professional.

    • Passamaquoddy tribal Historic Preservation OfficeThe Passamaquoddy Tribe opposes Downeast LNG's proposed use of Motewolon Ponapsq spirit person rock (a.k.a., Pulpit Rock); proposed terminal obstruction of its Tribal use; and the site's loss of tranquility that would occur due to the proposed terminal. Also opposed is the pipeline route through land, waters, and near islands used by the Tribe.
       
      The Tribe's position is "supported by authority of federal laws regarding historic properties and significant religious and cultural properties in accordance with of NHPA, NEPA, AIRFA, NAGPRA, ARPA, Executive Order 13007 Indian Sacred Sites, Executive Order 13175 Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, and Executive Order 12898 Environmental Justice."
