EDITOR, The Tribune.
NEW lower cost electricity generation the 80KW RFP at Blue Hill Road, I read with considerable interest that APD, Arawak Port Developments, are now part of the group headed by the US-based group who was close as a millimetre of getting the franchise of BEC from the PLP, New Fortress Group as seemingly the planned depot for LNG.
How the media did not pick up on this story is amazing - New Fortress APD plan to trench and put in place an LNG pipeline from Arawak Cay across the island to Blue Hill BP&L plant!
Imagine a gas pipeline through Chippingham - onto Oakes Field may be down Thompson Boulevard turning east onto Tonique Williams to Independence and south on Blue Hill!
Are these people totally out of their mind?
LNG is a gas which if it escapes does not rise unlike LP gas...if it explodes it explodes at a low level outward causing considerable explosion damage to any low lying building, etc…
I hope the Ministry of Works will immediately discount this proposal as a danger to the urban residential area across New Providence.
