FERC had been saying no LNG export, yet the pipeline partners said a year ago
in their Open Season: “as well as deliveries to Cove Point LNG”.
NextEra, co-owner of Sabal Trail Transmission,
is one of the Mountain Valley Pipeline partners.
Sabal Trail and FERC have told us Sabal Trail is not for LNG export,
yet they never told us about an already-approved LNG export license
right where the Sabal Trail pipeline chain goes in Florida.

Mountain Valley Pipeline partner says operation could be used for exports,
A partner in the controversial Mountain Valley Pipeline confirmed
this week that natural gas transported by the pipeline could be one
supply source for liquefied natural gas bound for India.
The news comes after Paul Friedman, a project manager for the
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, repeatedly — and
publicly — dismissed concerns last month from pipeline
opponents that natural gas transported through the pipeline would be

FPL’s hometown newspaper never mentions solar or wind in an opinion piece
asking whether you think the Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline is a good idea.
You can comment directly in the newspaper.
Maybe you’d like to send your comments to FERC, as well.

Should FPL’s natural gas pipeline be built?
NextEra Energy, parent of Florida Power & Light, is contracting with
Spectra Energy to run a natural gas pipleine 591 miles through the
heart of the state, ending in Martin County.
FPL President Eric Silagy says the company needs the additional
pipeline to provide redundancy and added capacity to the state’s
existing natural gas pipleines. FPL is now the nation’s largest
consumer of natural gas, he says.
It’s curious how

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?
