Quoddy Bay LNG, L.L.C. proposed to site, construct, and operate the Quoddy Bay LNG Import and Regasification Terminal Project at Pleasant Point and Perry, Washington County, Maine. The LNG Import Terminal will be located at the Pleasant Point Reservation of the Passamaquoddy Tribe. The storage facility will be located in the Town of Perry. The Project includes a 35.8-mile-long natural gas sendout pipeline to transport natural gas from the LNG Terminal to the interstate natural gas pipeline in the Town of Princeton. The Sendout Pipeline originates at the Import Facility in Western Passage of Passamaquoddy Bay and extends northwest through the Reservation and the Towns of Perry, Pembroke, Charlotte, Cooper, Alexander, and Princeton before reaching the interstate natural gas pipeline interconnect. An aboveground facility will be located at the interconnect location and will provide custody transfer metering, pressure regulation, gas preheat equipment, and other ancillary equipment.[2]

In October of 2008 FERC rejected Quoddy Bay LNG's pipeline application citing that the company had failed to provide information the agency had requested. The multimillion-dollar facility on the Pleasant Point Reservation, would have been near the reservation’s school, church and housing complex for the elderly. Although FERC stated that future applications for the location would be allowed, there is no evidence the terminal has been further pursued since the 2008 rejection.[1]
