Passamaquoddy Tribe to weigh new gas terminal site

The Passamaquoddy Tribe of Maine is being asked to approve an agreement to host a liquefied natural gas terminal at a new site after the first one on the Pleasant Point Reservation was rejected.

Quoddy Bay LLC, an Oklahoma firm, wants build the terminal at Split Rock. Opponents immediately blasted the plan because the site is sacred.

"Not only is it inappropriate, it is outrageous and insulting," Linda Godfrey, a spokeswoman for Save Passamaquoddy Bay, a group of tribal and non-tribal members who are fighting the terminal, told The Portland Press Herald.

The tribal council is set to vote on the new agreement next Thursday.
