FERC Authorizes Bradwood Landing LNG Project

Today FERC approved the Bradwood Landing LNG import terminal, the first LNG import project authorized for the U.S. West Coast. FERC Chairman Joseph Kelliher said the Commission’s primary focus is “safety considerations” and that the authorization is conditioned on the project meeting over one hundred stipulations to “assure safety and mitigate environmental impact.” FERC Commissioner Jon Wellinghoff dissented, stating that “[t]he evidence demonstrates that the Bradwood Project is not in the public interest and, therefore, should be denied.” The authorization is available in FERC’s eLibrary under Docket No. CP06-365.
