The Latest Update to the Save Passamaquoddy Bay website:

  • Dec 8
    • ENERGY PROJECTS, OFFICE OF [FERC] —
      • DeLNG finished more lobster sampling in Mill Cove last week.
      • DeLNG is tracking comments filed on the docket and preparing responses.
      • Marine geotechnical studies are ongoing, hope to complete in January. Land-based sampling is completed but waiting for lab results. Further process design work is pending completion of geotechnical studies, and some environmental work (e.g. visual impact assessment) is pending
        further design work.
      • Some clearing has been done for a dirt access road for geotechnical test drilling equipment.
         
    • Save Passamaquoddy Bay — Turkey prohibits LNG transits through its Bosphorus Strait — the same as Canada's prohibition in Head Harbour Passage. Both countries provide innocent passage; however, LNG transits through those passages — engulfing civilians and civilian assets within US Government-defined Hazard Zones — would not be innocent, thus innocent passage does not apply.
