Coast Guard Says Sandia Report Not Appropriate for Broadwater

The Day of New London, Conn. is reporting that the U.S. Coast Guard has sent a letter to Broadwater LNG informing the terminal developer that its previously filed safety and security report is inadequate. The Coast Guard asserts that since Broadwater’s report is based on the Sandia National Laboratories Report, which examined smaller tanks and smaller vessels with different hull designs than Broadwater has proposed, Broadwater must perform terminal-specific safety and security studies and resubmit the report.

In addition, the Coast Guard states that Broadwater has labeled too much information as “Security Sensitive Information,” thereby removing it from public dissemination.  The letter urged that the new report be divided into sections according to whether the information is sensitive.
