Environmental groups said on Tuesday they may sue to block the construction of a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility on Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.The announcement comes a day after the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the five-member panel that oversees natural gas infrastructure in the US, gave the green light to Dominion Energy's Cove Point export terminal, which could export tens of millions of dekatherms of natural gas each year.Cove Point is now slated to become the first gas export facility on the east coast of the US, and the fourth approved by FERC in the continental US. The only terminal currently in operation in the country is in Alaska.The facilities have run into opposition from environmentalists who say transporting gas thousands of miles away will increase greenhouse gas emissions. лучшие ретро сборники
