CCA Position on LNG Facilities

Posted on April 01, 2006

Coastal Conservation Association strongly opposes open-loop liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals and favors closed-loop systems.  

If federal regulatory authorities issue licenses over our objection to open-loop LNG facilities, then CCA insists the license must require stringent monitoring and assessment of damage to marine resources – both those presently known and those yet to be determined.  Further, any damage to the resource must be fully avoided, and if avoidance is not possible, then the damage must be fully mitigated.
