Environmental Group Says “No Clear Reason” to Authorize Importation of Hot Gas

The Border Power Plant Working Group has questioned the need for the proposed North Baja Pipeline Expansion project, which would transport natural gas to markets in the Southwest from LNG import terminals in Baja California, Mexico. “There is no clear reason why it is in the benefit of the U.S. to authorize the importation of expensive ‘hot’ gas” when other domestic supplies are available and other LNG developers have agreed to import LNG that meets more stringent gas quality requirements, the co-chair of the California-based environmental organization said in a Dec. 25 letter to FERC. The letter is available in the FERC e-Library in Docket No. CP01-23-003. Platts LNG Daily provides press coverage. [Subscription required]
