New Brunswick Calls for Suspension of Review Process for Maine Terminals

The New Brunswick government has filed a motion with FERC to suspend the review process for the proposed LNG terminals in Maine in light of the Canadian government’s opposition to the passage of LNG tankers  through Canadian waters. Citing “administrative economy and efficiency,” the motion questioned the imposition of additional costs on multiple agencies and public resources if the terminals have no physical way of receiving LNG imports. According to New Brunswick Premier Shawn Graham, if FERC denies the motion, the Province “will continue to fight vigorously for all New Brunswickers through the FERC process.” Today’s edition of The Telegraph-Journal has the story. The filing may be found in the FERC e-Library in Docket Nos. CP07-38 and CP07-52.
