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.
The DOE has permitted Eagle LNG with a Continue reading JACKSONVILLE FLA: DOE GRANTS LONG-TERM, MULTI-CONTRACT ORDER TO EXPORT & PROCESS LNG BY TRAIN TRUCK OR SEA VESSEL FROM, OR IN ISO CONTAINERS LOADED FROM EAGLE LNG’s FACILITY AT ST JOHN’S RIVER, TO FTA NATIONS →
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? →
The excuse for Spectra’s Sabal Trail pipeline is new natural gas
electric generating units in Florida. FPL calls this “modernizing“, which is an odd word for using 20th century fossil fuels when 21st century solar power, conservation, and efficiency is ready right now for the Sunshine State.
Adding to their opposition to LNG export, the Sierra Club Board of Directors has adopted this new policy:
“Natural Gas: The Sierra Club opposes new electric generating
units powered by natural gas, including peaking and combined cycle
units. Consistent with the Board’s goal of eliminating all fossil
fuels from the electric sector no later than 2030, it is critical
that the US avoid further high-capital investments in new natural
gas plants and related infrastructure.”
This is in Sierra Club’s Continue reading Sierra Club opposes new natural gas electric generating units: good news against Sabal Trail →
Marcellus Shale fracked methane through Atlantic Sunrise to Transco to Sabal Trail to TECO to Jaxport for LNG export?
And maybe an explanation for why Sempra Energy, like Spectra Energy,
donated to both GA Gov. Nathan Deal’s and AL Gov. Robert Bentley’s
Sempra apparently wants to export Marcellus Shale gas from Jacksonville,
and Sabal Trail is the proposed conduit for that through Alabama and Georgia

Still time to object to this fourth company
filing to export Sabal Trail fracked methane,
adding to the
three already authorized.
FERC knew about this Strom LNG export request before
the last three FERC Scoping Meetings, and never told us.
This fourth LNG export operation will affect both the Santa Fe River watershed
and the St Johns River watershed.
Strom, Inc. filed LNG export authorization requests with U.S.
DoE’s Office of Fossil Energy (FE) 18 April 2014,
all still being considered, all for liquifying in Starke, Bradford County, Florida,
all for 25 years,
and all explicitly saying they want to use Sabal Trail fracked methane.

The co-founder of the company building the LNG facility at Jaxport
is all for exporting natural gas, even if it means rising domestic prices.
T. Boone Pickens is a co-founder of Clean Energy Co.?

have it,” Continue reading I’d go ahead and let the gas go into the global market. –T. Boone Pickens →
