We have moved into the construction phase of the Tacoma LNG facility. All construction is being executed entirely on site. We are currently in the last phases of demolition and have begun ground improvements for the new construction.

LNG Siting Report Access Process

9/20/2016

We have received requests to release the LNG Siting Report publicly. While we are unable to release the report to the general public due to its CEII content, we have developed a process to provide access to the report to those who specifically request it.

Since the events of 9/11, federal procedures and rules limit public access to certain energy infrastructure information. The intent is to safeguard the information, called Critical Energy Infrastructure Information (CEII), from falling into the wrong hands. PSE’s LNG Siting Report includes CEII information that has not been shared publicly to remain compliant with these federal regulations.

PSE's process for requesting access to the report is similar to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s CEII release process, and requires completing two forms and submitting them to PSE for review. Below are links to the forms.

Please print and complete forms (see links above) and mail to:

LNG Project Team
Puget Sound Energy
P.O. Box 97034 EST-11W
Bellevue, WA 98009-9734

You may also email the completed forms to tacomacleanlng@pse.com.

Once PSE receives your completed forms, you will receive a confirmation email with additional instructions for viewing the materials.
