IECA* Delivers Scathing
Rebuke to US DOE**

IECA Moves to Suspend or Deny DOE
Approval of Downeast LNG Exporting to Non-Free Trade Agreement Nations

— DOE has Violated the Natural Gas Act —

Since Downeast LNG has not completed the required NEPA process (and is such a tenuous project that it has little prospect of properly completing that process) DOE has violated its own policy — and the Natural Gas Act — by providing its export approval to Downeast LNG.

IECA observes that 'public interest' in DOE's view is whatever benefits a few natural gas resource owners and export terminal owners — in conflict with Justice Brandeis’ concept that the public interest is that which produces the most good for the most people.

* IECA — Industrial Energy Consumers of America
** DOE — US Department of Energy

NOTABLE QUOTE(S):

Michael Brune, Sierra Club executive director

"Natural gas is not a bridge – it’s a gangplank."

Rally against pipelines, Willamette Media, Salem, OR; 2015 May 19


Art Berman, petroleum industry expert —

“The folly of the U.S. model for LNG exports is that the world is holding its breath. Well, guess what? The world has changed.”

“If these guys want to spend all this money to export LNG, let them hang themselves. We (the United States) get it wrong every time and it just seems like we're on track to do it again.” [Bold emphasis added.]
