Downeast LNG alters plan for LNG Terminal

Dean Girdis, CEO of Downeast LNG, announced that the company is altering the proposed Washington County, Maine, facility to be a “bi-directional facility.”   The facility would handle both the import and export of natural gas.  The proposed project would have the ability to liquefy 2 million tons of LNG (270 mmcfd of gas) per year or regasify 100 mmcfd of LNG, based on market conditions.  The announcement comes a month after FERC’s final environmental impact statement in favor of the facility, released in May 2014, on the original proposal.  Downeast LNG plans to submit Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and non-FTA export requests with the Department of Energy and enter the pre-filing process with FERC within the month.  The press release can be found here.  The complete docket for the Downeast LNG import terminal can be found on eLibrary under Docket No. CP07-52.
