Canadian Government Continues Opposition to Downeast LNG Import Terminal

Canadian Ambassador Gary Doer filed a letter at FERC on Friday reiterating the Canadian government’s opposition to the proposed Downeast LNG import terminal on the Maine side of Passamaquoddy Bay. Doer stated that the Canadian government’s position is that since LNG tankers serving the terminal would have to pass through Canadian waters, the proposal cannot proceed and the Canadian government will not cooperate on coordination planning with U.S. authorities or curtail use of the waterways to accommodate LNG tankers. Copies of the letter can be accessed here, and the complete docket for the Downeast project can be found on eLibrary by searching for Docket No. CP07-52.
