This summary of the Environmental Statement describes components of the Arctic Pilot Project, the environmental setting, the anticipated environmental impacts and mitigative measures to be used to reduce them, as well as the implications to public safety. The Environmental Statement presents information summarized from a much larger collection of material .... Environmental assessments for the gas wells and gas gathering facilities associated with the Drake Point field, as well as the receiving facilities located at the southern terminal will be provided in the near future. This document does not address the considerations involved in the movement of the LNG carriers through Danish waters along the Greenland coast. ... In the opinion of the proponents, the Arctic Pilot Project can be designed and constructed in such a manner that, with incorporation of appropriate mitigative measures, only minor impacts on the environment will occur. ...
It is felt that, because of the low potential for interaction with the general public either in coastal populations or on other ships along the LNG transport route, and because of the ice crushing strength, power, and maneuverability of the vessels, the risk to public safety from a potential accidental release of LNG will be well within acceptable limits.
