Federal Agency Critical of Water Intake Screening Systems Planned for Bradwood Landing LNG Terminal

Last Friday the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) provided its response to designs for water intake screening systems proposed by NorthernStar Energy, LLC to mitigate juvenile fish entrainment at its Bradwood Landing LNG terminal. NMFS stated that because NorthernStar cannot guarantee that all LNG vessels servicing the Bradwood Landing LNG terminal will be retrofitted to use a proposed wharf-based screen system, the system cannot meet NMFS’ screening criteria and guidelines. Find the NMFS comments in FERC’s eLibrary under Docket No. CP06-365.
