LNG Failure: FERC Has Removed Quoddy Bay LNG From Maps of Proposed & Potential LNG Terminals

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) dismissed the Quoddy Bay LNG (QBLNG) project in Passamaquoddy Bay on 2008 October 17, stating that the company would need to re-apply as an entirely new project, with completed application, before it would be considered by FERC. Then, on 2008 November 6, QBLNG withdrew from the State of Maine permitting process. On 2009 Jun 9, the Pleasant Point (Sipayik) Passamaquoddy Tribal Government severed its ground lease agreement with QBLNG, leaving the project with no site.

As a final gesture of project failure, on or prior to July 29, FERC removed QBLNG from its maps of Proposed and Potential LNG Projects in North America.
