  • Sierra Club continued to its voice opposition to exports of LNG by filing a protest with FERC against the proposed Golden Pass LNG export terminal near Sabine Pass, Texas.  As in several previous protests against LNG export terminal projects which FERC found unpersuasive, Sierra Club argued, among other things, that the project is contrary to the public interest due to (1) the project’s negative impacts on air and water pollution and endangered species, and (2) the increased shale gas production and increased domestic gas prices that would be induced by LNG exports.  Sierra Club’s protest can be found here - http://elibrary.ferc.gov/idmws/search/fercgensearch.asp, and the complete docket for the proposed Golden Pass LNG export terminal project can be found on eLibrary under Docket No. CP14-517.
