Followup to today's earlier News Release:
Only 3 of 16 North American LNG Import Terminals in Use
[Quoted from The Daily Record, article "Fight over exports at Cove Point," 2012 Apr 29, <http://thedailyrecord.com/2012/04/29/fight-over-exports-at-cove-point/>. Bold red emphasis has been added.]
But fracking, the most significant development in the American energy industry in decades, has been disruptive to import facilities. Only three of the 16 liquid natural gas import terminals in North America are in use, said Zach Allen, president of energy consultants Pan EurAsian Enterprises Inc. Fracking has cut the demand for imports and turned the United States into a potential source of exports, he said.
Save Passamaquoddy Bay (SPB) is an alliance of citizens from the U.S., the Passamaquoddy Tribe, and Canada, who oppose siting LNG industrial facilities in Passamaquoddy Bay, and who advocate adherence to world-recognized LNG terminal siting best safe practices as published by the Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators (SIGTTO). SPB advocates creative-economy, tradition-based, and tourism-based economic development for the international Passamaquoddy Bay area.
