Coast Guard Approves Port Ambrose LNG Import Terminal Near NYC/NJ

stamp of approvalThis is interesting! For some time MDN has tracked the Port Ambrose floating LNG terminal proposed by Liberty Natural Gas that would sit about 20 miles off the coast of New York and 29 miles off the coast of New Jersey, a plan Liberty created back in 2010, before the Marcellus Shale revolution really began to rock and roll. Liberty plans to import natural gas from Trinidad to sell into the northeast. In fact, Liberty took to slamming “fracked” gas from the Marcellus, saying imported gas is better for the U.S. of A.

Just last week we told you that anti-drillers had turned the argument around and are now arguing the facility isn’t needed because there’s–yes–so much fracked Marcellus gas! The very thing they hate (see Antis Continue Campaign Against Off-Shore LNG Terminal Near NY/NJ). Breaking news: The United States Maritime Administration and U.S. Coast Guard have just issued a 4,242 page final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Port Ambrose Project. In it they confirm that “the project is needed, the location is safe, and the impacts to the environment are minimal.” That is, the feds have just given the project a green light, which won’t sit well with global warming alarmists…
