The Attorney General for Massachusetts, Martha Coakley, has requested that Captain of the Port for Sector Southeastern New England, Raymond J. Perry, reconsider his determination that the waterways associated with the planned Weaver’s Cove LNG terminal are suitable for the type and volume of LNG vessel traffic contemplated by the project. Massachusetts’ request is available in the FERC eLibrary under Docket No. CP04-36.
