If you’re a Houston fossil fuel company and you can’t get FERC approval fast enough, try FE, or MARAD!
If that doesn’t work, ship it by land through Canada or Mexico!
Local property rights, they laugh at those! Rio Grande, Suwannee River, or Hudson River: just minor obstacles to greed!
If the people are tired of profit being more important than their land, water, air, or safety, it’s time to stop this fossil fuel shell game.
MARAD Continue reading The LNG export shell game: FERC, FE, MARAD, or NEB? →
How big is the LNG export gold rush?
Here are maps of dozens of approved, proposed, and potential LNG export terminals,
one of them even including Carib’s FE-authorized Martin County LNG export facility that FERC never seems to remember and Sabal Trail never talks about.
Update 2015-02-23: Now with the rest of the maps.
In addition to the
approved LNG import and export terminals,
there are more on this
FERC map of Proposed North American LNG Export Terminals,
including ones in Lake Charles (2 and 7), Sabine Pass (6), Plaquemines Parish (8 and 11), and Cameron Parish (13) Louisiana,
Lavaca Bay (4) and Sabine Pass (9), Texas,
Elba Island (5), Georgia, and Jacksonvile (14), Florida,
as well as Coos Bay (1) and Astoria (3), Oregon,
plus two in Kitimat (15 and 17) and one on Douglas Island (16), British Columbia.
One of those proposed BC LNG export terminals is where
Spectra Energy proposes to build not one but two pipelines.
And even that ain’t all. Continue reading LNG export approved and proposed →
The U.S. DoE official in charge of natural gas testified to FERC’s
oversight committee that fracking provides “unprecedented opportunities”
for profit through LNG export.
She, like FERC, says the opportunities are “for the United States”,
and they’re both wrong. Pipelines to LNG export
that would raise domestic natural gas prices and take
local land and pollute local air and water is not for the U.S.:
they’re for profit by a few fossil fuel companies and Continue reading New pipelines are for fracking and LNG export –FE official to Congress →
How long until the same company that already got FE authorization for
LNG export from Texas files for the same from its idle LNG facility
offshore from Boston?

Northeast Gateway facility is owned and operated by Excelerate
Energy. The facility began commercial operations Continue reading How long until Excelerate files for LNG export from Massachusetts Bay? →
