Natural Gas Storage Facility Hearing

Posted:

The long-delayed permitting process for a proposed expansion of the natural gas storage facility in salt domes beneath Lake Peigneur in Iberia Parish is once again moving forward.  A public hearing on one of the three remaining state permits needed for the controversial project is set for Feb. 20 in New Iberia.  Atlanta-based AGL Resources is proposing to scour out two new salt caverns for natural gas storage at its Jefferson Island Storage & Hub Facility.  Nara Crowley, a Lake Peigneur area resident who has been fighting the expansion, said she hopes state regulators will give the project a closer look in light of the ongoing issues with the large sinkhole believed to be related to a failed salt cavern at Bayou Corne in Assumption Parish.
