New Fortress Energy and Delaware River Partners are proposing to add a dock with two more shipping berths to the Gibbstown terminal’s one dock that is already under construction, potentially tripling the activity at the facility. The terminal would require approximately 1,650 truck trips every day and 24-36 ship passages of loaded LNG or natural gas liquid (NGL) vessels on the Delaware River each year. Rail transport may be added and a new access road built. The Gibbstown site is located adjacent to the residential community of Gibbstown, including schools, playgrounds, and public buildings. Transport by truck and rail will require this flammable and potentially explosive cargo to be carried 125 miles or more through Pennsylvania and New Jersey – and on local highways in Delaware Valley counties such as Camden, Gloucester and Philadelphia. The highly dangerous loading of LNG directly to ships by pipes will be a continuous operation 24/7, 365 days per year. NGL will be stored on site in an old underground cavern. The entire property is a polluted superfund site that was owned by DuPont as an explosives manufacturing plant and by other industries that added to the contamination.
Please join us at the forum to learn more about this dangerous proposal and what you can do about it.
