Project Overview & Purpose
Quoddy Bay LNG, L.L.C. proposes to site, construct, and operate the Quoddy Bay LNG Import and Regasification Terminal Project at Pleasant Point and Perry, Washington County, Maine.
- Our project includes an LNG terminal facility that is comprised of four main components:
- The LNG Import and Regasification Facility (Import Facility), which includes a pier, two vessel berths, and a regasification process platform;
- The Split Rock Support Facility (Support Facility), which includes a control building, office and warehouse;
- The LNG transfer pipelines and vapor return line (LNG Transfer System); and,
- The Onshore Storage and Regasification Facility (Storage Facility), which includes three storage tanks, electric generation equipment, and a regasification facility.
The LNG Import Terminal will be located at the Pleasant Point Reservation of the Passamaquoddy Tribe. The storage facility will be located in the Town of Perry.
The Project includes a 35.8-mile-long natural gas sendout pipeline to transport natural gas from the LNG Terminal to the interstate natural gas pipeline in the Town of Princeton. The Sendout Pipeline originates at the Import Facility in Western Passage of Passamaquoddy Bay and extends northwest through the Reservation and the Towns of Perry, Pembroke, Charlotte, Cooper, Alexander, and Princeton before reaching the interstate natural gas pipeline interconnect. An aboveground facility will be located at the interconnect location and will provide custody transfer metering, pressure regulation, gas preheat equipment, and other ancillary equipment.
Purpose and Need
The Quoddy Bay LNG Project has two core goals: to provide the Passamaquoddy Tribe with a source of economic growth and independence and to supply New England with natural gas to meet growing demand with a reliable supply.
The Quoddy Bay Project will provide the Passamaquoddy Tribe with a steady source of revenue and jobs, while also providing economic stimulus to all of Washington County, Maine.
The Project will import, receive, store, vaporize, and transport LNG and the related natural gas to provide lower cost gas at stable prices to Maine and Southern New England. The Project will add to the diversity of supply of natural gas, thereby decreasing the dependency on U.S. reserves and on other fuels that have more harmful effects on the environment.
