St. Andrews to host public LNG meeting

by Marie Jones Holmes

Downeast LNG has scheduled a public meeting at the Fairmont-Algonquin Hotel in St. Andrews on Wednesday, February 15, from 7 to 9 p.m. to provide information on its proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) project to be located along Route 1 at Mill Cove in Robbinston. LNG ships will arrive at the Downeast LNG facility via marine transport through Head Harbour Passage, Western Passage, and Passmaquoddy Bay.

The meeting is being hosted by Dean Girdis, president of Downeast LNG, a Washington, D.C.-based company.

Previous public meetings held in St. Andrews concerning the planned location of LNG facilities across from the town of St. Andrews and the necessary passage of LNG vessels through Canadian waters have resulted in much vocal opposition to the proposals.
