Confirmed: LNG Coming to Boston on Jan 22 is Illegal Russian Gas

We now have confirmation from the Russians themselves that the natural gas shipment on its way to Boston we alerted you to a few days ago is, indeed, Russian gas from the Yamal LNG plant, located in the Russian Arctic (see Russian LNG Coming to Boston to Alleviate NatGas Shortage?!). Even the ultra libs at the Boston Globe are admitting it’s Russian gas. We certainly hope American authorities are on the case and will stop the shipment because it is ILLEGAL. As we told you in our story posted Monday, the U.S. slapped the Yamal LNG plant with sanctions following Russia’s moves against the Ukraine. It’s illegal to receive gas produced from that plant. Shippers attempted to whitewash the gas by unloading it in the UK, and a few days later, reloading it on a different ship, the Gaselys, now heading at full speed for Boston. This is an outrage, for a number of reasons, but we’ll mention two: (1) The gas is illegal. (2) More pipelines from the Marcellus Shale region, about 300 miles from Boston, would alleviate the high prices and shortages New England currently experiences.
