Comments from SpectraBusters, Inc. against small LNG
ISSUES AND CONCERNS ASSOCIATED WITH “SMALL-SCALE” INLAND LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS (LNG) PRODUCTION, STORAGE AND TRANSPORT FACILITIES:
- The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has abdicated Congressional authority under Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) for the siting, construction, operation and maintenance of small-scale inland LNG export facilities.
- How is an LNG export facility that must obtain an export license from the U. S. Department of Energy not, from FERC’s perspective, an “export” facility within the meaning of the NGA and thus not subject to FERC’s jurisdiction (see Pivotal LNG, Inc., FERC Docket No. RP15-259-000 Issued April 2, 2015, Norman Bay, Commissioner, Dissenting Opinion).
- How is an LNG “export” facility that trucks LNG 440 yards to a dock not Continue reading Comments from SpectraBusters, Inc. against small LNG
The Plan We Must Stop
This is the beginning of a series of blogs to educate the public about the dangers of LNG as well as to convince as many people that we can to object to this dangerous precedent by providing information about what LNG is and what you can do.
Liquefied Natural Gas or LNG and the proposed DOE rule that would allow unregulated, with no agency oversight, small scale processing facilities to pop up in your neighborhood endangering you, family, friends. By allowing LNG processing to be your neighbor, pass you in a semi, or be on the same train as you commute, or simply passing through the area you live in, you are at great risk. We encourage you to comment to the Federal Registry Public Comment Concerning Unregulated Small Scale LNG Processing Facilities.
This a very dangerous and unhealthy addition of unregulated Continue reading LNG – Liquefied Natural Gas & Small Scale Processing Facilities-Action Needed

We must resist and oppose the Sabal Trail Pipeline, but not with violence. The means are the ends in the making. The end is peace and peace must be the path.
I should point out that at this time it remains unclear whether the gunman near Dunnellon was intentionally firing at the pipeline or was a water protector. It’s also important to question the veracity of the initial reports, whether this man even discharged a firearm as alleged. All the water protectors I’ve met at the Sabal Trail Pipeline construction sites and water camps are completely committed to nonviolence.
Here is our peaceful strategy to stop fracking, endless drilling, and endless construction of pipeline that threaten water, our most precious natural resource: Divestment from fossil fuels and pipeline companies and #BankExit from the banks that are funding them. Let’s invest in solar power and other renewable energy technologies, and socially responsible financial institutions like community banks and credit unions. These are constructive actions for all of us, and they are peaceful.
–Tim Canova, SpectraBusters Board Member, with approval of the board
Especially since the Army Corps issued its permit for Sabal Trail last summer, Florida is swarming against that fossil fuel invader like an ant bed stirred by a 600-mile-long pipeline stick. That’s great! However, there’s a lot of duplication of effort. And Florida is not the only place Spectra Energy is gouging its pipes: Georgia and Alabama, too, with implications far beyond.
The oldest name in Sabal Trail opposition, SpectraBusters, invites applications for two things: Continue reading SpectraBusters seeks new Allies and Board members
Water Levels are very low due to lack of rain but Sabal Trail pipeline is still pumping 100’s of Thousands gallons or water from the protected Sante Fe River.
This pumping began over a week ago after Sabal was denied further access to water at already FERC approved Beachville Mine due to owner being informed as to what they are doing with the water – use it to test and push pipe after HDD drilling UNDER the Sante FE River for over 2900′ Ft.
Water Protectors from Sacred Water Camp and Water Is Life Camp joined forces to slow the progress by direct action as they did these actions people on recon snapped the photos you see below.
Gilchrist County deputies and Sabal Trail Security have pushed people into barbed wired fences and physically attacked individuals who are exercising free speech on a PUBLIC Road and many times in the right of way. You may see videos of these actions on https://facebook.com/groups/sacredwatercamp
Please join us or support us in these actions to protect our water – Water is Life! All info and videos can be found on the above Facebook page – note important info in pinned post including directions to Sacred Water Camp.
Suwannee County is a very large aquifer re-charge and dis-charge area for the Floridan Aquifer that is now very threatened. Suwannee County is also the home of 1,000’s of fresh Water Springs – Windows to the Aquifer with many 1st magnitude springs threatened by this fracked gas pipeline for export to other countries. Not to mention the wetlands that play a vital part of water filtration. Sabal Trail is dumping sludge, getting leaking equipment stuck — destroying close to 1,000 acres of wetlands.
Please report any violations that you may see and again join us or send support – see Facebook page please and pinned post in group.

Hello from Sacred Water Camp
Just what is in ‘natural’ fracked and piped gas?
There are many variables in the chemical composition of natural gas. Depending on where it came from to what the receiver requires and what it going to be used for.
Certainly not a chemist, but the link and attachment contain info that may be helpful to those who want to know.
