I am strongly contesting the information provided in the
RR1 Sabal-Trail-Project initial Draft PF
— final PDF,
Accession number 20131115-5084,
docket number PF14-1.
Sabal Trail has not met their commitments
to provide information to me, the
property owner. Their filing exaggerated their efforts to contact
and respond to property owners concerns.
Why are Jaxport tenants buying LNG ships and a company that already has
an LNG export license?
And why is Jaxport so interested in becoming a major player in natural gas?
All reports agree this liquid natural gas (LNG) facility
is for supplying methane-fueled trucks and buses,
and some say its gas will come from a pipeline.
But are trucks and buses really the only destination for that pipelined
gas, or is it also intended for export, as
the U.S. House subcommittee chaired by
Ted Poe of Houston (home of Spectra Energy)
recently advocated at great length?
The data on Florida pipeline accidents
Ichetucknee Alliance’s position paper against the pipeline
(the position that got Spectra’s Andrea Grover to say the
“preferred” route had moved and “currently” there was no threat
to the Ichetucknee River or Columbia County, Florida);
that pipeline accident data
Pipeline Safety Tracker,
which finds an even worse pipeline safety record
for Georgia: 89 incidents, 7 fatalities, 36 injuries, and $56.3 million in property damage.
My husband and I are adamantly opposed to the pipeline which is
proposed to run through our property for a variety of reasons
Safety concerns-Spectra Energy has a very questionable
safety record with a history of fines by the EPA for leaks and
We already have one gas pipeline on our
property and believe that we should not be required to basically
give up control of even more of our personal property for which we
have worked hard to purchase and maintain for yet another pipeline
which will further limit the use of our property;
value would be negatively affected by up 50%;
time payment is nowhere near adequate for permanent damage,
especially when FPL and Spectra would continue to profit forever;
This pipeline would be of no benefit either to our local community
Please help us save our land and our community by blocking
I am a landowner and taxpayer in close
proximity to where the Sabal Trail Pipeline (Docket PF-14-1) will be
put in place. I am opposed to this pipeline going in near my
neighborhood. I am opposed to the pipeline on behalf of my
neighbors. I think that alternate routes are available that will not
impact this area in Lowndes County, Georgia.
The proposed natural gas pipeline by
Sabal Trails/Spectra Energy is not in the interest of United States
citizens much less the states that it crosses—Alabama, Georgia
and Florida. Natural gas and fossil fuel companies are trying to
force profits out of a dying industry at the expense of the
communities and people’s health and livelihoods in their wake.
Fossil fuels are dirty and dangerous sources of energy that FERC
should not approve new projects for. We need to conserve our land
and water for all people, instead of destroying them for money and
profits that cannot replace diminished life.
I ask that docket # PF14-1 not be approved. Please protect the
rights of the landowners affected by this pipeline route. Nobody
should be forced to have a pipeline as large as 36″ with an
explosion radius of 600′ on their land. There are as many as 80
explosions a year from natural gas pipelines causing injury and
death to those unfortunate enough to be in the path of one. Natural
gas is not a safe alternative fuel as the industry tries to paint
the picture. We need focus on renewable energies that are safe for
humans and the environment. Exploitation of the environment for
corporate profits needs to become a thing of the past!
