Sabal Trail is not just about taking private land by eminent domain and gouging its fracked methane pipeline through farms, rivers, and the Floridan Aquifer to get to power plants in Florida. It’s also about bomb trucks, trains, and ships to export liquid natural gas (LNG) all over the world for higher private profit.
Much of this information has been found or compiled by WWALS member Cecile Scofield of Martin County, Florida.

It’s always been the fossil fuel industry plan to suck up Marcellus Shale
fracked gas from Pennsylvania through the Williams Co. Atlantic Sunrise pipeline,
send it backwards south down the Williams Co. Transco pipeline,
dropping it off at Cove Point LNG export in Maryland, at Elba Island LNG export in Georgia, and at Sabal Trail in Alabama through Georgia and Florida to
half a dozen already-authorized LNG export operations in Florida,
as illustrated in this map from an industry publication of January 2014,
before Sabal Trail even entered the formal FERC permitting process.
- Here’s an example, AES Port of Palm Beach LNG export at end of Transco → Sabal Trail → FSC pipeline chain
- Here’s a list of most of the LNG export operations in Florida.
- Here is Cecile’s list of U.S. DOE LNG Export Authorizations granted as of 6 January 2017 in a spreadsheet and PDF.
