UUs at Stop Fracked Gas Exports: Cove Point and Beyond July 13, 2014
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will be nearing its decision on a natural gas export facility – Cove Point, MD – just 50 miles from the White House on the Chesapeake Bay. This Cove Point terminal would drain huge pools of Marcellus Shale gas for export 6,000 miles to Asia. It would be the first such liquefied natural gas export facility – containing a processing “train” of highly hazardous and volatile materials – ever built right next to a residential neighborhood. Local residents are deeply concerned about an accident on the facility that could escalate into a major fire or other life-threatening event.
