Natural Gas permits allowed for Radio Island.

Bad news the state voted yes for the permitting process a Huge Natural Gas Facility. A natural gas facility is looking for a port. Morehead City Ports Authority the state of NC and even the local Chamber of Comererce has supported and voted yes for the 18 to 24 month permitting process. This is a large facility that will pipe natural gas all over eastern nc.

This ia a run away rollercoaster, spearheaded and represented by the last governor Jim Hunt's law firm. Smell fishy, indeed the same man who left of state 800 million in debt, introduced the corp hog farm, which the taxpayer are paying for the cleanup on the lagoons. They could care less about the envinoment, greed driven by '.

How does it affect YOU? Well natural gas is much to dangerous to ship by rail and truck, thats why its piped. 1000' ships would have to bring the gas in, All the gas will be brought by ship and than piped all over eastern NC. No be deal? Wrong, these ships filled w/ NG will shut Beafort inlet down to all traffic within 1.5 to 2 miles around the ship. This includes rt. 70 between morehead city and beaufort, the inlet, and port. How many ships a year, they say 75 and that has to be the biggest crock of sh#@, ITs more than double that; 150 to 200 ships a year. Oh so you think its only to affect Beaufort and Morehead City, think again. Their plans are to barge NG up and down the icw. North thru the newport river up the ditch into the neuse river. No doubt some will go up the river to cherry pt. marines, until the pipe is built. But further N to help that new steel plant on the pamilco river, and still further to the roanoke river for the new propsed ethanol plant. Covering all bodies of water. This is very scary and real. Yes, a grace of two miles will be granted to the barge. This will effect all ICW trafic since most boats don't go around NC Capes. Barged to the South, there's is a huge marine facilty called Camp Lejeune, I know they would like some gas.

Big $, the nat. gas facility is est. at 450 to 600 million to build, the pipe about 3000 a linear ft. to construct. Jobs, no more than 150 when operational. Too much money is involved, damm greed is running rampant in eastern NC.

If you fish in and around cape lookout, harkers beaufort, the rivers intercoastal, neuse,pamilco, emerald isle please take the time to call or fax these fine folks to let them know how you feel!

RE: Natural Gas permits allowed for Radio Island.

We have to get natural gas somehow. The problem with these environmentalists is that they would rather we live in the dark without heat because no form of energy is environmentally friendly enough for them. If you dont like natural gas in your area set the example and turn off the lights and your heat and hot water. Look at the situation in California. The environmentalists have created a situation in that state in which a new power plant has not been built in the last ten years while at the same time the population and demand for energy in that state has exploded. They have even removed hydro-electric dams so fish could get up river, this just is not prudent, and they are now reaping what they have sowed. I like fishing as much as anybody but I like heat electric and hot water just a little bit more!!

RE: Natural Gas permits allowed for Radio Island.

I think you and fishbuster1 are getting a little
ahead of things. When looking into the Ethanol
plants that might be build on the Roanoke River,
I found out that SCANA (SC) and CP&L (NC) have the rights
to deliver natural gas to eastern NC. Which means the
Radio Island plant will not be able to sell gas to
local consumers. So we're not talking about your
stove, or even the light industry in eastern NC.

I think the new plant will have to be a private
distribution system for heavy industry. The N&O paper
in Raleigh briefly mentions 5 large power generation
plants can be built with the Radio Island as the
supplier. I'd take that as a pretty big hint. In other words, we'll probably get the power plants to supply New England.

Also, SCANA and CP&L have the right-aways to put in pipelines right now to eastern NC. I think I remember
seen pipepline completion dates in the not too distant
future for SCANA. Seems to me, that existing infrastructure
would be a lot cheaper than shipping in LNG in 1000'
