Land in Perry optioned for LNG tanks

by Marie Jones Holmes

Quoddy Bay LLC has optioned approximately 170 acres of land in Perry between the Old Eastport Road and Cannon Hill Road for the location of three proposed 160,000-cubic-meter liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tanks. The land is the former Ted St. Pierre property and was sold in September 2005 to Moet Farms.

The tank area would be located within one mile of Quoddy Bay LLC's proposed LNG two-berth pier and platform import facility to be built in Passamaquoddy Bay at Split Rock, Pleasant Point.

The Oklahoma-based firm has also purchased the former Lobster Crate Restaurant in Perry for use as a local project office.
