BANGOR (AP) – The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has dismissed an Oklahoma developer’s application to build a liquefied natural gas terminal at the Passamaquoddy Indian reservation at eastern Maine’s Pleasant Point.

The agency says the dismissal was prompted by Quoddy Bay LNG’s failure to provide information the agency had requested about the project in order to proceed with an engineering review and environmental assessment.

Company President Don Smith says the dismissal comes as no surprise. He said it delays the project for several years but will not cause any changes in the plan.

Two other LNG projects in the nearby communities of Robbinston and Calais are still pending.
