Calais LNG Withdraws
State Applications

Calais LNG wrote to the Maine BEP, withdrawing its applications. For the project to progress, it would need to begin from scratch.

Arthur Gelber indicated to the Bangor Daily News on December 10 that withdrawal means the project is defeated.

BEP Chair's Draft Decision —
Return Calais LNG's Permits

…knocking CLNG out of the state permitting process.

If Calais LNG does not withdraw, the full BEP Board will vote on the Draft Decision on Dec 16.

If Calais LNG either withdraws or the BEP votes to return the applications, then Calais LNG would have to re-start the state permitting process from the beginning — if and when the developer can resolve the existing fatal problems.

BEP Chair Sue Lessard's draft decision details the many steps the Board has taken so far in the Calais LNG permitting process, including expediting the process and the multiple time extensions. In retun, Calais LNG has…

  • Failed to provide required information that resulted in the original delaying of the formal hearings that were to have taken place in 2010 July;
  • Lost its financial capacity;
  • Has not demonstrated it has obtained financial capacity;
  • Lost title, right, and interest in the land required for the project; and
  • Withheld critical information from the BEP.

Calais LNG
has new owner remaining owner:
North East Energy Development LLC

(Ian Emergy, Art Gelber, Carl Myers, Jim Lewis)

North East Energy Development has been a part owner of Calais LNG, all along. The previous managing partner was GS Power Holdings (Goldman Sachs), the partner with the financial capacity. Goldman Sachs backed out of the project, leaving North East Energy Development holding the bag as the sole owner.

Calais LNG wrote on 2010 Dec 2 to the Maine Board of Environmental Protection that on 2010 Nov 24, "ownership" of Calais LNG transferred from GS Power Holdings (Goldman Sachs) to North East Energy Development LLC. "Full ownership" might have been a more appropriate description.

Calais LNG Has Lost
Right to Terminal Site Property

In a Nov 17 letter to the Maine Board of Environmental Protection, the owners of the property proposed for the Calais LNG terminal indicated that as of Sep 1, "[Calais LNG] lost any right to use or purchase our property." And, "we currently have no new or existing contract with CLNG, nor do we have any obligation to sell our property to them. Presently, Calais LNG has absolutely no title, right or interest in our land."

In other words, Calais LNG has no Title, Right, or Interest (TRI) in the property, violating a Maine permitting requirement.

The property owners, "request that tbe Board of Environmental Protection enforce the regulations and continue to postpone or suspend the processing of CLNG's permitting application."

Image Problems:
Calais LNG & Downeast LNG

Calais LNG and Downeast LNG are doing their best to project a negative image by attempting to bully a foreign government, Canada.

Calais LNG is claiming that cooperation from Canada is not required for LNG ship transits to their proposed terminal site. Reality states otherwise.

Canada has firmly and repeatedly indicated LNG transits through Canadian waters into and through Passamaquoddy Bay are prohibited. Even in the unlikely event that Canada were to passively allow LNG transits, it is indicating it will provide no assistance whatsoever regarding safety and security of those LNG vessel transits.

Since Canada...

  1. Does not allow armed escort;
  2. Would not allow private security in Canadian waters;
  3. Would not provide at-sea or onshore security along the transit route where the ship would pass back and forth several times between US and Canadian waters;
  4. Would not provide Canadian Coast Guard assistance to clear the transit from anticipated civil disobedience in the waterway...

...it does not pass credible scrutiny that Calais LNG could satisfy the US Coast Guard's Congressional mandate for safe and secure transits that are wholly independent from the WSA and LOR, unless cooperation from Canada is obtained.

For the Calais LNG project to have any chance of success means having to move outside Passamaquoddy Bay where Canada would not be impacted. Calais LNG's obstinate refusal to do so, along with the recently-emerged North American natural gas glut, is probably why Calais LNG's Goldman Sachs financial backing was lost, and what dooms the project to ultimate failure.

BEP grants Calais LNG more time
…even more time than they asked for!

Calais LNG asked the Maine Board of Environmental Protection (BEP) until mid-October to find a new investor. Not only did BEP Chair grant the request, she has given Calais LNG until December 1st to find a new financial backer and to also correct insufficiencies with their applications.

Plus, the December 1st date is not actually a "deadline."

All this comes a long time after Calais LNG pressed the BEP for expedited permit processing. Then, Calais LNG backed out of the 2010 July formal permitting hearings because its permit applications were deficient.

It also comes after Calais LNG promised twice to withdraw its applications — but then reneged!

Calais LNG attempts to stall
Maine BEP yet again!

Calais LNG's attorney has again requested the Maine Board of Environmental Protection (BEP) delay the permitting process Conference of Counsel that was to occur on Sep 15 until the week of Oct 11.

Once again, Calais LNG indicated that its new date is merely a "maybe"…

"Due to the complex nature of these negotiations, it is not now possible to predict precisely when the discussions might be concluded such that a new financial partner can be identified to the Board and the parties. Given that uncertainty, therefore, Calais LNG respectfully requests that the BEP provide it with an additional 30 days to complete those efforts."

This time, however, the BEP did not allow delaying the Conference of Counsel meeting. Whether or not Calais LNG will be allowed to delay demonstrating financial capacity for a third time will be determined at the Sep 15 Conference of Counsel meeting.

Purpose of the Conference: To discuss issues associated with Calais LNG’s September 13th submission.

    1. Status of Financing and Time-Table
    2. Status of Outstanding Technical Information / Time Frame for Submission
    3. Status of Calais LNG’s FERC Application
    4. Issues associated with continuing to keep processing of the application on hold
    5. Other

After all that bluster, Downeast LNG isn't filing its state applications now, after all

Remember how 14 months ago DeLNG didn't want anything to delay their permitting?

After Downeast LNG made multiple claims — even before the Maine Board of Environmental Protection — that they would be filing their Maine permit applications in early July, then late July, and then in August, Downeast LNG finally revealed in a September 2 article in The Calais Advertiser that they will not be filing their state applications until after FERC releases the project's Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). Downeast LNG's Rob Wyatt, reportedly stated, 'Downeast LNG believes in a cautious approach to what it is doing,' and is quoted as saying...

"I want the final EIS in hand before we approach the State with our applications. That is because if we learn there are things to change, we will have that in progress before we submit the applications."

Apparently, Downeast LNG's 2007 state permit applications that were withdrawn after going completely through the hearing process "don't count" in the company's "cautious approach." And, what were all those claims about re-entering the state permitting process this past July and August?

Downeast LNG still does not know if it is ready — after being a year and two months late in answering FERC's technical questions arising out of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement.

The Calais Advertiser goes on to state the Coast Guard gave the project a "favorable" Waterway Suitability Report (WSR) and Letter of Recommendation (LOR), but failed to mention that the WSR and LOR require Downeast LNG to obtain Canada's cooperation for secure LNG transits. How "favorable" is that?

Canada has repeatedly and firmly stated at the highest level that LNG transits are prohibited from Passamaquoddy Bay. There is no chance Canada will cooperate. Downeast LNG cannot comply with the US Coast Guard requirements.

For Downeast LNG to never file state permit applications would be the best strategy for the company and everyone else. It would save a lot of wasted effort and wasted money.

CLNG loses Goldman Sachs backing

On July 21, Calais LNG's lawfirm submitted a letter to the Maine Board of Environmental Protection (BEP) indicating that GS Power Holdings (a division of Goldman Sachs) is selling its interest in Calais LNG, and will no longer be backing the project.

For that reason, Calais LNG requests postponing a BEP "Conference of Council" meeting that was to occur this Friday (Jul 23) in Hampden for all parties to discuss Calais LNG's postponement of their BEP permit hearings that were to have occurred all this week (July 19–23).

This calls into question Calais LNG's credibility regarding why they postponed the BEP hearings that were to take place the week of July 19–23.

It further calls into question Calais LNG principal Arthur Gelber's prefiled testimony to the BEP that Calais LNG was well financed, due to backing by Goldman Sachs wholly-owned subsidiary GS Power Holdings LLC.

Canada prohibits LNG transits
elsewhere in Passamaquoddy Bay

Calais LNG has been attempting to gain support from Maine fishermen by foisting the projects' ill effects onto New Brunswick fishermen and boaters. Calais LNG has promised the local Maine fishermen that the LNG ships would transit on the Canadian side of the border through Western Passage, the open part of Passamaquoddy Bay, and the St. Croix River, in order to avoid disturbing Maine fishing and to avoid damaging Maine fishing gear. Instead, Calais LNG would disturb Canadian fishing and boating, and damage Canadian fishing gear.

In a June 29 letter, Canada has formally notified the Maine Department of Environmental Protection that, in order to protect the fishery, the environment, and the public, LNG transits are prohibited in those internal Canadian waters. If transits were to occur, they would have to occur in US waters.

Calais LNG, lawfirm, politicians
humiliated by BEP decision

AUGUSTA, March 18 — The Maine Board of Environmental Protection (BEP) hearing in Augusta determined if the BEP would assume jurisdiction over Calais LNG state permitting. Calais LNG partner Ian Emery, Preti Flaherty attorney David Van Slyke, Maine state Senator Kevin Raye, Maine state Representative David Burns, the Calais City Manager, and a representative from the Maine State Building and Construction Trades Council argued in an attempt to dissuade the BEP from taking jurisdiction.

Calais LNG proponents' assertions:

  • Passamaquoddy Bay is an insignificant state resource;
  • LNG in Passamaquoddy Bay is not of statewide interest;
  • New Brunswick, Canada, should not be allowed to have an LNG terminal while Maine has none;
  • The BEP would simply stall the permitting process; and
  • Jobs and taxes are the only issue.

The BEP voted unanimously to take jurisdiction

Purpose & need statement
demonstrates
Calais LNG is surplus

Purpose and Need statement from Calais LNG's Natural Resources Protection Act (NRPA) Application, Attachment 1:

“…New England relies on long-distance pipelines to supply approximately 80 percent of its total natural gas needs”

Approximate natural gas output being fed into the New England natural gas market from existing and under-construction LNG import facilities:

  • Canaport LNG, Saint John, NB — 20%
  • Distrigas LNG, Everett, MA — 20%
  • Northeast Gateway, Gloucester, MA — 20%
  • Neptune LNG, Gloucester, MA — 20%

Approximate total output = 80 percent of New England's natural gas requirement.

Existing LNG import infrastructure plus long-distance pipelines equal 160% of New England's natural gas requirement.

Calais LNG is moot.
