Jackson County Residents Express Their Feelings On Proposed LNG Terminal

"We want to be responsive to the local population and make sure were considering everything and their feelings, " says U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Derek Dostie.

U.S. Coast Guard and the Maritime Administration were on hand to speak to citizens and also provide them with information on the project.

Organizers say the proposed LNG terminal would go up in the Gulf of Mexico near Louisiana. However, some parts will extend to Mississippi to the import natural gas.

This is a direct response to bring natural gas into the country and hopefully alleviate some of the pricing concerns," says Lt. Dostie.

"Our current available natural gas in this country is very limited its a finite amount if we bring in gas from all over the world it is good for the consumer itself," says MossPoint resident Chris Hiastand.

Other residents who attended the meeting were not as satisfied.

"Were are concerned how this facility and there are nine of them, there are eight of them across the Gulf of Mexico will impact our fishery and our ability to catfish," says Serria Club member Darryl Malek'wiley.

He says the dangers of the pipelines are also a big concern

"Possible accidents fires explosions from the pipe lines If the L-N-G terminal is approved, it will take three years to complete,"says Malek'wiley.
