Operator files papers to build LNG terminal in eastern Maine

(CALAIS, Maine) — Calais LNG has formally filed an application with the federal government to build a liquified natural gas terminal on the eastern tip of Maine, the Bangor Daily News newspaper reported. The $1 billion project on the St. Croix River and Passamaquoddy Bay would include a berth for one LNG carrier and would create jobs for tugboat operators and other mariners. Hurdles include local opposition and Canada's refusal to allow the vessels to sail through Head Harbor Passage.
