U.S. Coast Guard Issues Letter of Recommendation for Weaver’s Cove LNG

Yesterday the U.S. Coast Guard issued a Letter of Recommendation (LOR) on the suitability of Narragansett Bay and Mt. Hope Bay for LNG vessel traffic associated with the planned Weaver’s Cove LNG import terminal. The LOR states that the relevant portions of the waterways may be considered “suitable for the type and frequency of LNG marine traffic associated with [the] project,” provided that Weaver’s Cove Energy, LLC implements a number of risk management strategies and mitigation measures. The LOR is available in the FERC eLibrary under Docket No. CP04-36.
