4th post from Energy conference: LNG siting challenges a sign of the timesPosted by Dorothy Rothrock, Sr. Vice President, Government Relations on July 27, 2007
From William Booth, counsel for the California Large Energy Consumers Association:
Recent experience on the siting of liquefied natural gas terminals is "emblematic to California's approach to infrastructure and it isn't good."
"Two of the proposed LNG projects--one onshore, one offshore--were turned down, not going to happen. Both have gone to inordinate lengths to deal with envionmental issues. The opposition is fierce, organized and relatively sophisticated."
Decisionmakers, Booth said "are going to need to step up," adding, "We shouldn't let Malibu determine state energy policy."
