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.
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.
Many eyes watching pipeline construction can catch shoddy work,
and even FDEP will step in to deal with the most egregious violations,
as Spectra and Rockford for FPL rush to try to finish by May 2017.
Shannon Larsen’s complaint to Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP)
at least briefly shut down destruction by Florida Southeast Connection (FSC)
at Ft Drum Creek, just south of Ft. Drum, Florida.
On the telephone just now she told me work had indeed been halted.
Fracking Industry, Sabal Trail pipeline, LNG Export To Other Countries With No need or Necessity for the Citizens of our Florida as well as Georgia and Alabama. If you ever questioned the plan to export fracked gas then this should quell those misconceptions!
Heads up Jacksonville and the citizens of the state of Florida! The first major LNG processing of fracked natural gas, transportation via truck and train — moving bombs as experienced in other states that have been invaded by the fracked gas export/transport pipelines through populated areas — has been given the Green Light.
Driving to Tampa from Tallahassee and back I saw over a half a dozen
of these trucks heading east and south on I-10 east and I-75 south
I suppose that could be somebody else’s pipe, but Sabal Trail
announced back in November 2014, before it even entered the formal FERC filing process, that it had contracted to buy its pipe from
Berg Pipe of Mobile, AL and Panama City, FL.
Sabal Trail’s press releases didn’t mention, but Berg’s owner Salzgitter Group even earlier did, that “The two companies in Panama City and Mobile are subsidiaries of EUROPIPE GmbH, Mülheim, Germany, a joint venture of Salzgitter AG and AG der Dillinger Hüttenwerke.”
So the pipe purchase profits go to Germany.
And even Sabal Trail couldn’t come up with a press release about this for Georgia,
because there are no economic benefits to Georgia.
Even the temporary pipe jobs in Florida and Alabama are just that: temporary. Continue reading Sabal Trail pipe on trucks 2016-08-11→
Commissioners Dennis Damato, Ronald Kitchen, Joe Meek, Scott Adams,
and Scott Carnahan unanimously passed a ban-fracking ordinance. The
ordinance was amended to include all the county, both incorporated
and non-incorporated areas, skillfully inserted by the able and
prepared county attorney Denise A. Dymond Lyn.
