Port Ambrose LNG review suspended temporarily

The U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Maritime Administration placed a temporary suspension on their review of the proposed Port Ambrose deepwater LNG project.

The project to be located approximately 19 miles off the coast of New York will be able to provide 400 mcf of natural gas per day on average through a 22-mile subsea pipeline.

According to the suspension letter, the suspension will enable the Coast Guard and MARAD to complete their final environmental impact statement and allow Liberty Natural Gas, the developer of the project, to submit financial responsibility data.

The initial deadline for the EIS was 21 days from March 16 but the indefinite suspension has put the date back until the agencies complete the processing of over 10,000 public comments.
