Crown Landing LNG Proposal Receives USCG Preliminary Approval

The US Coast Guard yesterday gave BP’s proposed Crown Landing LNG terminal preliminary approval on the condition that appropriate Coast Guard resources are available and the company has adequate funding to implement mandatory security measures, the particulars of which Captain of the Port Officer David Scott said “can’t be publicly divulged.” According to a Coast Guard press release, security measures likely include “safety zones around the LNG carriers, a waterway traffic management plan, escorts by armed law enforcement vessels and a variety of waterway and shoreline surveillance measures.” Today’s Philadelphia Inquirer has the report.
