Broadwater Files Comments Regarding Necessity of LNG Project and Gas Quality

Broadwater Energy yesterday responded to assertions made by politicians and local activists that the company’s proposed LNG terminal is not necessary. In its reply comments, Broadwater said that the proposed Canadian projects are either stalled or will not likely meet New York and Connecticut’s rising consumer demands for energy. Also, while acknowledging the importance of gas composition issues, Broadwater said that there is “ample time” for those concerns to be addressed after theauthorization process is complete and prior to the in-service date of the facility. Finally, the comments dismiss the State of Connecticut’s request for coastal zone consistency certification, claiming that the imposition of required security zones is subject to a different standard of review that gives federal agencies more authority. The comments are available in the FERC e-Library in Docket No. CP06-56.
