    NPR News Covers LB LNG Controversy

    (May 18, 2004) -- National Public Radio's "Morning Edition" has carried a news story on LB's LNG controversy, filed by Rachael Myrow (frequently heard locally covering news for NPR L.A. market affiliate KPCC, 89.3 FM).

    Ms. Myrow's story, aired during the May 18 edition of NPR's nationally broadcast morning news magazine, included dueling sound clips from the Mitsubishi subsidiary's video LNG presentation and project critic/LB activist Bry Myown; noted the recent FERC study on LNG release scenarios; includes sound clips of MIT professor Jim Fay (critic of an existing Boston LNG facility); said the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security has identified LNG terminals as potential targets; noted the LB-Los Angeles Port complex handles 40% of the nation's trade; says industry analysts warn that fear of potential disasters could scuttle plans for onshore and offshore LNG facilities and includes a sound clip of Jay Robinson, Director of FERC's Office of Energy Projects.

    Ms. Myrow ends by reporting that the U.S. Energy Dept. predicts nine more LNG terminals will be needed over the next two decades to meet expected demand "but it's precisely where natural gas supplies may be needed most -- the west coast and the northeast -- that proposals to import LNG face the most opposition."

    The news segment, carried locally on KPCC 89.3 FM and across the country on hundreds of NPR stations, is expected to appear in audio archived form within a few days on NPR's web site at
