Letter: Export of LNG poses many risks
Wednesday, December 5, 2012
The liquefied natural gas terminal, with a possible 240 tanker transits annually to and from Warrenton, Ore., and dock time for LNG export loading as now proposed by the company Oregon LNG, puts massive cryogenic tankers on the Columbia River every day of the year.
LNG tankers are a special risk and could, in fact, close the lower Columbia to private craft for fishermen and other recreational boaters. If you believe statements otherwise by LNG proponents, Google "LNG Syriana" and form your own opinion. LNG export is not pro-business or pro-jobs.
