An outrageous proposal to export Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from a Gibbstown Deepwater port known as Gibbstown Logistics Center in Gibbstown, Gloucester County, NJ on the Delaware River has popped up in the past few weeks as a full-blown fast-tracked terminal that would be the first LNG export facility in New Jersey or the Delaware River Basin. Governor Murphy’s representative already voted in support the project last week in a rush to judgment at the DRBC.
New Fortress Energy wants to truck LNG hundreds of miles from western Pennsylvania’s fracked shale fields, through PA and NJ communities to Gibbstown where ships would export the gas for sale overseas. The LNG export plan was kept secret by NJDEP, the DRBC, and other agencies for at least 2 years, records have revealed, allowing the project to creep ahead and depriving the public of knowledge and input.
