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.

    • Individual No Affiliation [Carl & Heather Ross]The Rosses express their opposition to Downeast LNG, and provide a list of safety, environmental, and esthetic reasons for their opposition.
       
      NOTE: This comment actually appeared on the FERC docket on Friday, Nov 14, despite FERC's Accession Number indicating Nov 17.

       
    • Save Passamaquoddy BayFERC has once again violated the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as well as the public trust. FERC's NOI (Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement) re the proposed Downeast LNG Export Project, and notice of the FERC Scoping Period, intentionally omits in its project area map the 4,000-foot-long trestle and pier. In doing so, FERC has exhibited its prejudice in favor of the proposed project by "minimizing" the apparent impact, while simultaneously withholding critical information from public stakeholders.

    • Save Passamaquoddy BayDowneast LNG evaded reporting the contents of a letter from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) in DeLNG's monthly Pre-Filing Status Report No. 3 posted to the docket on Nov 12. Save Passamaquoddy Bay obtained a copy of the letter, and posted it to the docket here. MDIFW lists numerous environmental concerns in its letter to DeLNG.

    • ENERGY PROJECTS, OFFICE OF [FERC]Scoping Meeting transcript. NOTE: Although the filed date was Nov 4, this filing did not appear on the FERC eLibrary Docket until Nov. 13.
         
    • INDIVIDUAL [Paul Strickland]FERC gave inadequate notice of the Scoping Meeting. FERC made intentional errors in the previous Final Environmental Impact Statement. Paul Strickland asks FERC if it intends to correct those errors prior to continuing the permitting process. Since more sound-producing equimpment is now being proposed, are sound barriers being considered? Concerns are expressed regarding storage and use of highly-combustive hydrocarbons required for the liquefaction process. Air pollution from the liquefaction process is expressed as a concern. Negative impacts on local water quality are mentioned. Eminent domain re the proposed pipeline is a concern.
