Downeast LNG is proposing to build a safe and environmentally sound LNG import terminal at Mill Cove in Robbinston, Maine, on Passamaquoddy Bay. The proposed facility will consist of two storage tanks, a re-gasification plant, a pier to receive LNG carriers, and a natural gas pipeline that will connect the facility to the existing pipeline that runs from Nova Scotia, Canada, through Maine.

In January of 2006, the people of Robbinston voted 227 to 83 in support of the Downeast LNG project in a special town election, and the project subsequently received approval of its land use permit applications from the Robbinston Planning Board. The project is undergoing a review by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and will be submitting permit applications to the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in the near future.

The Downeast LNG project will bring good paying jobs to Washington County and provide Maine and the Northeast with a much needed new supply of natural gas.
