Sen. Wyden requests LNG vapor cloud dispersion evaluation info from FERC

Senator Ron Wyden wrote a letter to FERC and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration requesting information about methods used to estimate the environmental and public safety risks of proposed LNG terminals in the United States.

According to Senator Wyden’s letter, serious concerns were raised regarding the adequacy of the hazard modeling used to measure vapor cloud dispersion, during the public comments for the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal project.

Wyden stressed that it is imperative that FERC and PHMSA use the best information and methods available to approve or deny projects, such as LNG facilities.

It is also important for the public to have access to as much of this information as possible to ensure transparency in the permitting and evaluation process, said Wyden.
