Environmental Groups Challenge Cameron LNG FERC Order; Cameron LNG Says Too Late

Sierra Club, Gulf Restoration Network, and RESTORE filed a request for rehearing and stay of FERC’s order granting authority to Cameron LNG to construct an LNG export facility near Hackberry, La., alleging that FERC’s environmental analysis failed to adequately consider the effects of increased gas production and air pollution that could be induced by the project and the project’s effect on wetlands.  Cameron LNG responded by filing a motion requesting that FERC dismiss the request for rehearing and stay since it was filed one day past the statutory deadline for such requests.  The complete docket for the Cameron LNG project can be found on eLibrary under Docket No. CP13-25.
