Broadwater to appeal decision on LNG terminal
An energy company that wants to buildthe world's first floating liquefied natural gas terminal in LongIsland Sound says it will appeal to the U.S. Commerce Department. The appeal follows decisions by the governors of New York andConnecticut opposing the $700 million terminal by Broadwater, aconsortium of Shell Oil and TransCanada Pipelines Ltd. The terminal would be the length of four football fields andabout eight stories high. The plan is to place it nine miles offthe north shore of Long Island and 11 miles from the Connecticutcoast. Environmentalists and virtually every politician of both partiesin both states oppose the project.
