On May 7 Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-Maryland), the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, will convene a second hearing on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals. The hearing will be held in Farmingville, NY. Liquid natural gas is gas cooled to a temperature of less than 260 degrees Fahrenheit, making it a liquid. Natural gas is then transported in ships in this form.
At Monday's hearing, the Subcommittee will continue examining the safety and security of LNG terminals
and their impact on port operations. The hearing will also examine the proposed Broadwater floating LNG terminal
in Long Island Sound.
