USCG Issues LOR and WSR for Downeast LNG

Yesterday the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) issued  its formal Letter of Recommendation and Waterway Suitability Report regarding the Passamaquoddy Bay waterway to be used by LNG vessels servicing the proposed Downeast LNG terminal. According to the USCG press release, after extensive review and analysis, it has determined that the waterway will be suitable for the type and amount of LNG vessel traffic contemplated by the project, provided Downeast LNG implements the recommended risk mitigation measures. The press release does not identify these required mitigation measures. The LOR and WSR will be available in the FERC eLibrary under Docket No. CP07-52.
