BP Touts Closed-Loop System at Crown Landing

BP has gained the approval of some local environmentalists by promising its proposed Crown Landing terminal will use a closed-loop system to regasify imported LNG.  In today’s Gloucester County Times, BP’s spokesperson said that “this closed loop system is more expensive, but we think it’s more appropriate.”  Another BP spokesperson noted that, because the Delaware River is so cold in the winter, the river water would not provide enough heat to regasify LNG. [This article is no longer available online.]

[LNGLawBlog notes that in an open-loop system the water used to reheat the LNG is returned to the ocean or river colder than its original temperature, not warmer as this article states.]
