Public to Voice Opposition to Natural Gas Port Off Fort Lauderdale Coast

Posted by John Sabia on Monday, July 28th, 2008 at 11:17pm.

On August 11, the Broward Legislative Delegation will meet to hear public concerns and opposition against the proposed undersea natural gas port off the coastline of Fort Lauderdale. Residents along Fort Lauderdale beach area especially owners of Fort Lauderdale Condos at Galt Ocean Mile and Lauderdale by the Sea plan to make their objections heard at this meeting and vow to flood the office of Governor Charlie Crist with phone calls and faxes since it appears the final decision will fall to the Governor.

The undersea port project, "Calyso" proposed by Suez, a subsidiary of a French energy giant will consist of two natural gas terminals that will be constructed approximately 8 to 10 miles off the Fort Lauderdale coast. Tankers with liquefied natural gas will be able to dock alongside, heat the gas back to vapor and transport it through a pipeline to Florida's energy plants.

The meeting on August 11th will be open to the public and will be held at the Beach Community Center at 3351 NE 33rd Ave, Fort Lauderdale, Florida from 5:00 - 7:30pm.

Anyone planning to speak should register online at least 2 days prior to the meeting .
