Environmental Review
Schedule & Deadline
— Suspended —

FERC's 90-Day Deadline for Other Federal Agencies
to Make Their Downeast LNG Permitting Decisions

The schedule for EIS review has been SUSPENDED, due to Downeast LNG's change in plans to amend their FIRST application (the import application) to add Exporting, rather than a second application that they have already Pre-filed to do.

Downeast LNG's revised website, The Project > Downeast LNG Project Overview (PDF; 34KB), 2014 June —

"Visual Issues

"The site is uniquely suited to accommodate the necessary structures with minimal visual impact from either Route 1 in Maine or from St. Andrews.…

"…The most visible aspect of the project will be the ship itself, which will be present only when it is in port and at a distance of more than 2 miles from St. Andrews…." [Bold, underlined emphasis added.]

Webmaster's comment: The 30-ft-tall sheet metal barrier that DeLNG proposes to erect along more than ½ mile of highway US-1, abutting a state-designated scenic area (Mill Cove), and the 4,000-foot-long trestle and pier that would cut across the mouth of scenic Mill Cove must not "count" in Dean Girdis's mind as visual impact.

And, Girdis says that the ship wouldn't be visible when it isn't in port! Brilliant!

Don't be surprised if Girdis's embarrassment results in his changing the text. But, never fear! SPB has preserved it for posterity! [See archived DeLNG's 2014 June edition of "Downeast LNG Project Overview" (PDF; 34KB), with SPB highlighting & comments.]

      FERC indicates that once Pre-filing is completed, the proposed Downeast LNG Export Project will be formally processed within the existing CP07-52, CP07-53, and CP07-53-001 dockets. In addition — and disturbingly — FERC indicates that the export project environmental document will be a "supplement" to the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) previously issued for the import project.

      FERC has failed its public interest responsibilities by not correcting the plethora of significant, and sometimes intentional, flaws in the original EIS.
