Mining America: We the People suffer the impacts while the Big Gas Mafia robber barons reap the profits.
There are three new LNG permits pending. This is to export our domestic natural gas–our so-called “national security.”
The Big Gas Mafia robber barons are mining America and destroying our vital natural resources–clean air, safe water and soil–for their profit. We currently have a gas glut in America where the price is around $2.50/Mcf. If they ship our national security domestically fracked natural gas to Asia, they can get between $14 and $16 per Mcf.
NOTE: mineral owners will not participate in those increased profits. You will be paid the domestic price.
Notice of intent to prepare an environmental assessment for the planned Corpus Christi LNG Terminal and Pipeline Project, request for comments on environmental issues, and notice of public scoping meeting re Corpus Christi Liquefaction, LLC under PF12-3
http://elibrary.ferc.gov/idmws/search/fercadvsearch.asp (accesion # 20120601-3015)
The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) will prepare an environmental assessment (EA) that will discuss the environmental impacts of the planned Corpus Christi LNG Terminal and Pipeline Project (Project). The Project would involve constructing and operating a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export and import terminal, and a natural gas transmission pipeline in Nueces and San Patricio Counties, Texas. The EA will be used by the Commission in its decision-making process to determine whether to authorize the LNG terminal. The EA will also be used by the Commission to help determine whether the pipeline facilities are in the public convenience and necessity.
This notice announces the opening of the scoping process the Commission will use to gather input from the public and interested agencies about the Project. Your input will help the Commission’s staff determine what issues need to be evaluated in the EA. Your input will also help the Commission’s staff determine whether the preparation of an environmental impact statement would be more appropriate for this project. Comments about the Project may be submitted in writing or verbally. In lieu of or in addition to submitting written comments, the Commission invites you to attend a public scoping meeting scheduled as follows:

Jordan Cove Energy Project, L.P.; Application for Long-Term Authorization to Export Liquefied Natural Gas Produced From Domestic and Canadian Natural Gas Resources to Non-Free Trade Agreement Countries for a 25-Year Period
The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) gives notice of receipt of an application (Application), filed on March 23, 2012, by Jordan Cove Energy Project, L.P. (Jordan Cove), requesting long-term, multi-contract authorization to export as liquefied natural gas (LNG) both natural gas produced domestically in the United States and natural gas produced in Canada and imported into the United States, in an amount up to the equivalent of 292 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas per year, 0.8 Bcf per day (Bcf/d), over a 25-year period, commencing on the earlier of the date of first export or seven years from the date the requested authorization is granted. The LNG would be exported from the proposed LNG terminal to be located on the North Spit of Coos Bay in Coos County, Oregon, to any country (1) with which the United States does not have a free trade agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas, (2) which has developed or in the future develops the capacity to import LNG via ocean-going carrier, and (3) with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy. Jordan Cove is requesting this authorization to export LNG both on its own behalf and as agent for other parties who hold title to the LNG at the point of export. The Application was filed under section 3 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA). Protests, motions to intervene, notices of intervention, and written comments are invited.

Gulf Coast proposes to export LNG from a proposed natural gas liquefaction facility and LNG terminal to be located at the Port of Brownsville in Brownsville, Texas, which Gulf Coast plans to develop, to any country which has or in the future develops the capacity to import LNG via ocean-going carrier, and with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy. Gulf Coast seeks to export this LNG on its own behalf and also as agent for third parties. The Application was filed under section 3 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA). Protests, motions to intervene, notices of intervention, and written comments are invited.
