Man-made Island Proposed as Terminal

Monday, February 06, 2006
A $1 billion plan for a liquefied natural gas terminal on a 53-acre man-made island in the Atlantic Ocean between Long Island and New Jersey was unveiled February 2 by a new company.

The announcement comes as another proposal, for a ship-like floating terminal anchored in the middle of Long Island Sound, has drawn widespread opposition from environmental groups and public officials in both New York and Connecticut. The new plan for an island, called Safe Harbor Energy, was announced by officials of the Atlantic Sea Island Group, a privately financed company. They will file an application in the next few months for government approvals. The site is 13.5 miles south of Long Beach and 19 miles east of Sandy Hook, N.J.
