Public meeting to be held on Elba Island LNG terminal expansion

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is holding a "Scoping Meeting" for the public Thursday in Savannah. 

The meeting is being held to discuss the expansion of the Elba Island liquefied natural gas terminal in Savannah which is looking at beginning a new exportation of the natural gas liquids like propane and butane. This is not to be confused with an earlier proposal to truck up to 58 tankers of liquid natural gas a day out of the facility and across DeRenne Avenue that created a heated debate and a fight from the city of Savannah, in which the city eventually won. 

Thursday's public scoping meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Chatham County/Savannah Metropolitan Planning Commission Building on East State Street in Savannah. 

The companies involved have established a website for the Elba Island project that includes a project overview, environmental information and information for affected stakeholders. View the website here.
