Safety and Security of Liquefied Natural Gas Terminals, Field Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, House of Representatives, One Hundred Tenth Congress, First Session, May 7, 2007 [open pdf - 5MB]
From the opening statement of Tim Bishop: "This hearing will focus on the multiple safety and security concerns presented by the Broadwater proposal as well as the cumulative impact to the approximately 40 other proposed LNG terminals nationwide. More specifically, this hearing will focus on the capacity of the United States Coast Guard to ensure the safe operation of the Floating Storing Regasification Unit and the delivery of LNG to FSRU, and to do so while still maintaining its core functions of homeland security, rescue and recovery, drug interdiction, border protections, among others. It is my hope that this hearing will provide much more information than is currently available on the safety and security challenges associated with dozens of new LNG terminals." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Peter Boynton, Steven E. Flynn, Brian Foley, Mark Gaffigan, John Hritcko, Bruce Johnson, Steve Levy, Bill McGintee, Kevin McCarrick, Mark O'Malley, Mark Robinson, Marc S. Alessi, and William P. Doyle.
