Environmental and Citizen Groups Request Extension of Time to Comment on Dominion Cove Point EA

The Chesapeake Climate Action Network, Earthjustice, Sierra Club, and other environmental groups plus several local citizens groups have asked FERC for a 60-day extension of time to comment on FERC’s Environmental Assessment (EA) of the Dominion Cove Point LNG (DCPL) exporter terminal project, citing the highly technical nature of the EA and the need for full public participation in the assessment.  DCPL and the American Petroleum Institute filed in opposition to the request, stating, among other things, that there already has been adequate opportunity for public comment on the environmental aspects of the project and further delay in acting on the project “will harm DCPL, its Export Customers, and the public interest supporting the development of the Project.”  The complete docket for the project can be found on eLibrary under Docket No. CP13-113.
