In its 2008 Sep 23 Monthly Pre-filing Status Report No. 1 to FERC, Calais LNG falsely claimed: "Met with 'Save Passamaquoddy Bay' on August 20, 2008."
On Oct 15, Save Passamaquoddy Bay 3-nation alliance filed a comment to the FERC CLNG docket repudiating CLNG's claim and requesting FERC to require substantiation of all claims made by CLNG in its reports to FERC.
On Oct 21, Calais LNG filed a revised report, replacing the false claim with "Attended Save Passamaquoddy Bay meeting on August 20, 2008" [referring to the SPB/Canada annual public meeting in St. Andrews].
Calais LNG has never had a meeting
with Save Passamaquoddy Bay.
SPB gets Maine
Dept. of Environmental Protection
LNG page removed
Since Downeast LNG withdrew from the Maine permitting process, their application materials’ continued presence on the Maine.gov website was invalid and inappropriate. At the request of SPB webmaster, Maine.gov’s LNG page was taken down on 2008 Aug 10.
Quoddy Bay LNG’s
“Winter 2008 Newsletter”
Quoddy Bay LNG's newsletters haven't been provided online on their website for some time, now. (The last one published to their site, as of this writing, is dated September 2006.)
Perhaps that's because as reflected in the lack of substance in their Winter 2008 edition that was bulk mailed around the area Quoddy Bay LNG isn't making any progress.
In the meantime, the Northeast Energy Deepwater Port off Gloucester, Massachusetts, is ready to receive its first cargo, Canaport will be finished around the end of 2008, and the Suez deepwater port off Gloucester will be completed around a year later. Quoddy Bay LNG and the other two proposed Passamaquoddy Bay projects may be finally realizing that they're beating a dead horse.
