DEIS issued for Port of Ambrose LNG deepwater project
The U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Maritime Administration issued a draft environmental impact statement for the proposed Port Ambrose LNG deepwater project.
Port Ambrose, developed by Liberty Natural Gas, is an offshore energy infrastructure project designed to deliver natural gas to the New York and New Jersey.
Port Ambrose would consist of a specially designed dual purpose LNG Shuttle and Regasification Vessels that transport LNG to a remote offshore location for regasification and supply of supplemental natural gas directly into a new subsea pipeline system feeding directly into the existing Transco Lower New York Bay Lateral pipeline serving New York.
Each delivery will provide an average of 400 million cubic feet of natural gas a day, enough gas to meet the energy needs of 1.5 million homes.
In its EIS, the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Maritime Administration say that with mitigation measures, the short and long-term environmental impacts from the project are minor to moderate.
