LNG Terminal Open Forum

Join the Fracked Gas LNG Forum Feb. 7!
Massive Liquefied Natural Gas Export Terminal Proposed Across from Chester, PA in Gibbstown, NJ on Delaware River

This Educational Forum will discuss the proposal to build a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Export Terminal on the Delaware River in Greenwich Twp., NJ, only 2.73 miles from Chester and 1.24 miles from Tinicum Township, PA backed up against the residential community of Gibbstown, NJ.

Learn all about what natural gas developers want to do – send hundreds of tank trucks or long trains of rail cars carrying millions of gallons of extremely dangerous, flammable and hazardous liquefied natural gas and natural gas liquids every day from the Marcellus Shale fields in western Pennsylvania through PA to Gibbstown NJ; load it on ships 24/7/365 at a new deepwater port just across from Chester and Tinicum Township PA; and ship it in enormous vessels down the Delaware River for sale overseas.

Friday, February 7, 2020, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Speaker Panel:

  • LNG expert Fred Millar will explore public health and safety issues - LNG transportation and handling
  • Explanation of the project – Tracy Carluccio, Delaware Riverkeeper Network
  • Gibbstown site issues, implications of project – Jeff Tittel, NJ Sierra Club
  • Climate and fossil fuel development impacts – Jocelyn Sawyer, Food and Water Watch
  • Natural Gas Liquids - Alex Bomstein, Clean Air Council

Take Notice! Chester, Tinicum Twp., and Southeastern PA, this forum is especially for you. You will be in the line of fire but Pennsylvania isn't involved in any of the decisions. You are within the potential impact zone of the terminal, should there be an accident, explosion, or pollution release of the flammable and hazardous liquids; a corridor for hundreds of trucks or “bomb trains” every day if LNG by Rail is approved; and alongside huge LNG ships as they pass up and down the river on their way to the foreign ports. Shipping and storage and railing in of Natural Gas Liquids will also increase if the Gibbstown Logistics Center export terminal expansion is approved. And all of this fracking development will worsen our climate change crisis.

Delaware Riverkeeper Network is cosponsoring the event with the Widener University College of Arts and Sciences and the Delaware Law School.
