The state Department of Environmental Conservation has extended the public comment period on proposed regulations to set criteria for the construction and operation of new liquefied natural gas facilities under DEC permits.
The proposed regulation would require permits for facilities that store LNG or convert it back to a gas.
Information about the proposed rule is posted at http://wdt.me/A6UAZu. The comment period runs through 5 p.m. Dec. 4. A public meeting and public hearing will be held Wednesday in Albany.
