Environmental groups appeal FERC’s Freeport LNG orders

Environmental groups appeal FERC's Freeport LNG orders

Sierra Club and Galveston Baykeeper filed a petition with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit raising questions about FERC’s orders authorizing construction of Freeport LNG export terminal.

The petitioners challenged the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission denial of the request for rehearing of the order, according to the filing.

Petitioners question whether FERC made errors in concluding  that the effects of the Freeport LNG project on induced gas production were outside the scope of the National Environmental Policy Act indirect and cumulative effects analyses.

Filing further reveals that, among other issues, the petitioners allege that FERC erred in refusing to consider the effects of the project on domestic electric sector air emissions, and that FERC violated NEPA by failing to take a hard look at the project’s air pollution impacts.
