Filed Date: 8/9/2006
Accession No: 20060814-0001
Description: Downeast LNG, Inc submits its Draft Resource Report 2 (Water Use and Quality) under PF06-13.
Information: FILE LIST

WEBMASTER'S COMMENTS: This filing includes the amount of seawater that Downeast LNG would use as ballast and for engine cooling. Although they indicate that they anticipate LNG ship sizes from 125,000 metric tons to 200,000 metric tons, they include seawater consumption for only two size ships: 125,000 metric tons and 138,000 metric tons. Downeast LNG indicates that seawater consumption for larger ships is "TBD" (To Be Determined).

The amounts of seawater usage for each of these smaller-size ships would be: 53,683 cubic meters — 14.18 million gallons in total (equivalent to the volume of 40.8 Pleasant Point water towers) for the 125,000 metric ton ship; and 53,107 cubic meters for ballast alone, but 389,107 cubic meters — 88.34 million gallons in total seawater usage (equivalent to the volume of 254.58 Pleasant Point water towers) for the 138,000 metric ton ship.

One can only imagine the seawater usage of a 200,000 metric ton ship!

These ships would be killing untold numbers of lobster larvae from the lobster nursery of Passamaquoddy Bay, as well as eggs and larvae of other valuable fishery species, inflicting significant economic harm on Maine and New Brunswick, and possibly on New Hampshire, Nova Scotia, and Massachusetts.

Filed By: ENVIRONMENTAL & ENGINEERING REVIEW [Hoffmann, Richard]
Filed Date: 8/24/2006
Accession No: 20060824-3023
Description: Letter to Downeast LNG, Inc enclosing FERC Staff's comments on the Draft Resource Reports 1, 4, 6, and 7 for the Downeast LNG Project and requests w/in 60 days a revised draft Resource Reports under PF06-13. WEBMASTER'S COMMENTS:
Downeast LNG demonstrates their incompetence by failing to meet FERC's draft Resource Reports deadline. This pushes back — by 60 days — the date that they can file a formal application. They now can't file any sooner than the end of October, but a more realistic time would be November, December, or later. They're even farther behind in the race they've already lost.

Filed By: DOWNEAST LNG, INC.
Filed Date: 8/29/2006
Accession No: 20060831-0073
Description: Downeast LNG, Inc submits the instant transmittal letter and Draft Resource Report 10 (Alternatives) in accordance w/ FERC's Regulations and its National Environmental Policy Act etc under PF06-13. WEBMASTER'S COMMENTS:
DELNG's alternatives to their initial pier design appear to be an attempt to avoid violating Maine law that prohibits piers from being more than 1,000 feet from shore.
        The alternatives include dredging, to bring pier closer to shore, with one alternative stretching across Mill Cove, near the opposite shore — near homes, and closer to the mouth of the St. Croix River, creating a greater navigation hazard. Also, apparently, cryogenic underwater LNG piping from ship to shore is proposed.

Filed By: ENERGY PROJECTS, OFFICE OF [Dunn, Shannon]
Filed Date: 8/31/2006
Accession No: 20060831-3000
Description: Letter providing FERC Staff's comments on Downeast LNG,Incorporated 's Draft Environmental Resource Report 9 under PF06-13. WEBMASTER'S COMMENTS:
FERC requests pollution emissions estimates — in tons per call and tons per year — for all escort boats and LNG tankers. Also, FERC asks what pollution impact there would be on air quality in Class 1 areas: Acadia National Park [which includes responsibility for St. Croix Island International Historic Site], Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge, and Roosevelt Campobello International Park. FERC asks DELNG if St. Croix Island would be included as a Class 1 Area. (NOTE TO FERC: St. Croix Island International Historic Site is under the auspices of the US Department of Interior, operated by Acadia National Park!) FERC asks DELNG to identify federal and state fugitive dust emissions requirements — including during dredging (dredging up toxins dumped into the bay by Domtar's paper mill predecessors). DELNG is asked to identify dust and noise effects during pile driving, dredging, and during pipeline construction.
      FERC didn't ask what CANADIAN Class 1 equivalents would be afffected by Downeast LNG's air pollution, such as the St. Andrews Blockhouse National Historic Site, Fort Beauséjour, Fundy National Park, and Kouchibouguac National Parkall of which would be downwind from Downeast LNG's air-polluting project, if it were ever built. Canada's sovereignty is again being challenged by US LNG developers and FERC.
