Calais LNG Terminal Hearing Postponed 

CALAIS, Maine (AP) – The state of Maine has agreed to postpone hearing on a proposal to build a $1 billion liquefied natural gas terminal in Calais. Calais LNG asked the Maine Board of Environmental Protection on Tuesday to put off the hearing until after Sept. 1 to give the company more time to provide information to the board and the Department of Environmental Protection. The board on Wednesday agreed to delay the hearing, which was scheduled to take place next week in Eastport and Calais. The proposed terminal would include a 20.5-mile natural gas pipeline, a pier and two storage tanks. A new hearing date has not be set.
