Filed Date: 4/24/2012
Accession No: 20120424-5054
Description: Supplemental Information of Downeast LNG, Inc., et. al. under CP07-52, et. al..DELNG's response to SPB comments April 24, 2012

Webmaster's comment: Downeast LNG president Dean Girdis submits a 41-page response to Save Passamaquoddy Bay's 2012 Mar 14 & 16 comment filings. Downeast LNG essentially claims that there is no solution to New England's need for natural gas but for the proposed Downeast LNG project. He claims there is no pipeline expansion going on to deliver more domestic natural gas to New England — except where there is pipeline expansion going on to deliver more domestic natural gas to New England.

Girdis claims that LNG imports at Everett LNG have been relatively constant between 2003–2010. That is misleading. Everett LNG's imports have fallen steadily since 2007 when domestic natural gas glut reality hit the market. Everett LNG's imports have fallen an additional 21% so far this year as compared to the same period in 2011.

Accession No: 20120430-0040
Description: Interagency Meeting re Downeast LNG Project under CP07-52 et al.

Summary: The Biological Assessment (BA) was discussed. Atlantic sturgeon will be included. The Gulf of Maine Distinct Population Segment (DPS) in freshwater extends eastward to Dennys Bay, which is outside the Downeast LNG project area. The DPS "includes wherever listed salmon occur in the marine and estuarine environment." Effects on right whale were discussed, and a new contact person in Gloucester, Massachusetts, will be identified. New species presence letters will be sought from Fisheries & Wildlife Service and from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Fisheries, due to the amount of time that has elapsed on this project.
