Massive Liquefied Natural Gas Export Terminal Proposed in Gibbstown, NJ on Delaware River
This Educational Forum will discuss the proposal to build a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Export Terminal on the Delaware River in Greenwich Twp., Gloucester County, NJ, only 2.73 miles from Chester, PA backed up against the residential community of Gibbstown, NJ.
February 7, 2020
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
University Center, Webb Room (Building #4, E. 14th St.)
Widener University Main Campus
Learn all about what natural gas developers want to do – send hundreds of tank trucks or long trains of rail cars carrying millions of gallons of extremely dangerous, flammable and hazardous liquefied natural gas and natural gas liquids every day from the Marcellus Shale fields in western Pennsylvania through PA and NJ to Gibbstown; load it on ships 24/7/365 at a new deepwater port on the Delaware River, 1¼ miles across from PA, and only 1.9 miles from the Philadelphia Airport; and ship it in enormous vessels down the Delaware River past South Jersey, Southeast PA, and Delaware for sale overseas.

Take Notice! This proposed export terminal will require hundreds of trucks and/or “bomb trains” to travel through PA and NJ every day; huge LNG ships would pass up and down the river and through the Delaware Bay on their way to the foreign ports. Shipping and storage and railing in of Natural Gas Liquids will also increase if the Gibbstown Logistics Center export terminal expansion is approved. And all of this fracking development will deepen the environmental impacts of fracking to the west of here in PA and worsen our climate change crisis.
