Proposed 6 NYCRR Part 570 - Regulation of Liquefied Natural Gas Facilities

DEC proposed the addition of Part 570 to 6 NYCRR to establish a permitting program for the safe siting, construction, and operation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities and transportation of LNG in New York State, as required in Article 23, Title 17 of the Environmental Conservation Law. LNG facilities are those that either store LNG in a tank system or convert LNG into natural gas through vaporization. The two types of facilities that DEC expects to permit most frequently include facilities to fuel trucks and facilities that store LNG as a backup heating fuel. The public comment period ended December 4, 2013.
