Markey: Gas pipeline firms want to 'use New England as a throughway' for international export
from The Republican
U.S. Sen. Ed Markey lashed out at the Energy Department for approving the export of domestic natural gas via pipeline to a Canadian shipping port, saying the move "would be a disaster for our consumers and our region" because it would link New England energy prices to international markets. Markey said the Feb. 5 announcement regarding the Goldboro Liquefied Natural Gas Project in Nova Scotia confirms his view "that the ultimate goal of some natural gas pipeline proposals" is to "use New England as a throughway to export U.S. natural gas to Canada and ultimately to overseas markets" instead of helping residents.
