USCG Issues Broadwater LNG Waterways Suitability Report

Monday, September 25, 2006
The US Coast Guard announced that the assessment of safety and security issues for the Broadwater Energy liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility proposed for Long Island Sound has been completed. The 168-page Waterways Suitability Report (WSR) will be included in the draft environmental impact statement being prepared by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Broadwater Energy is proposing to build a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) in Long Island Sound. The FSRU would measure approximately 1,215 feet in length, 200 feet in width, would rise 80 feet above the waterline to the deck, and would have a draft of approximately 40 feet. It would accommodate two or three LNG carriers per week with cargo capacities ranging from 125,000 to 250,000 cubic meters. The Coast Guard neither supports nor opposes the proposal, but does conclude that additional measures will be necessary to responsibly manage the safety and security risks associated with the proposed project.
