One thing that California and the UK have in common is that they have both approved sites for LEG terminals. After a long, drawn-out process in which it proved impossible to approve any of the proposed sites California finally, with the help of a new statute passed expressly for the purpose, was able to give approval for the remotest of all the sites on the list of possibles — Point Conception.1 California’s LNG Terminal Siting Act requires that, within one mile of the perimeter of the site, the population should not exceed ten persons to the square mile and that, within four miles of the site, the density should not exceed 60 persons to the square mile. Moreover, these stipulations also apply to the tankers laden with liquefied gas, which may be conceived of as mobile sites carrying their zones with them as they make their approach to the terminal or shelter offshore waiting for calmer weather before docking.
