So I am trying to find out what the link is between Fracking and LNG. From what I can make out, Fracked gas would be liquefied for storage and transport through a LNG facility, such as the proposed Port Ambrose. The ban on fracking in NY State is actually a loss for the LNG facility.
There is no ‘LNG storage’ at Port Ambrose, but because the tanker would take 17 days to unload and longer to load, the LNG is technically stored on the ships out in the water. This is what happens to transports moving liquified gas. READ: [Liquified] Gas Explosion Shatters Mexico City Maternity and Children’s Hospital
Can you imagine if this happened in our ocean?
The LNG cavern storage is also big issue right now in Seneca Lake, NY. Check out WE ARE SECENCA, where locals are doing everything they can (including jail time) to block the Crestwood’s gas storage facility.
