BIA stops lease for Passamaquoddy natural gas terminal
The Bureau of Indian Affairs has officially canceled a lease for a liquefied natural gas terminal on the Passamaquoddy Reservation in Maine.

Tribal leaders at Pleasant Point signed a contract with Quoddy Bay LNG to host the project. But the BIA never formally approved the deal.

The tribe eventually pulled out of the contract. Tribal members had filed a lawsuit in hopes of stopping the terminal.
