Offshore deepwater LNG import project Port Dolphin was approved by FERC in 2009,
despite interventions by a long list of other pipeline companies, FPL, and other entities.
FERC granted Port Dolphin permission to interconnect with
Gulfstream and Florida Gas Transmission, the two pipelines FPL
requires Sabal Trail to connect to.
What if Port Dolphin files to export LNG, as so many other import-permitted
projects are doing?

Pipeline that would carry natural gas extracted through hydraulic
fracturing from Pennsylvania and Texas through Alabama, Georgia, and
Florida. The new pipeline would begin in Alexander City, where it Continue reading Alabama Sierra Club against the Sabal Trail methane pipeline
TransCanada, of the notorious Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline,

and Spectra just got another approval for its “corridor” for not one
but two giant pipelines to the Pacific Ocean.

NEB OKs Spectra (Westcoast) Tolls; Major Expansion Planned to Serve Pacific LNG,
Spectra Energy (Westcoast) received approval from the National
