New Location for Datan Terminal (2021/05/03)

In a move to appease environmentalists, the Executive Yuan has revised its plan for building a liquefied natural gas station terminal in Taoyuan's Datan area. The new plan is to move the terminal 455 meters farther away from the coast. While the revision would cost an extra NT$15 billion, it would put the terminal farther away from an algal reef environmentalists fear would be destroyed by construction. However, the proposal got the cold shoulder from activists, who called on the government to offer more than one option.

At noon on Monday, Premier Su Tseng-chang convened DPP lawmakers for a briefing on a proposed relocation of the Datan LNG terminal project.

Wang Mei-hua
Economics minister
What we are looking at now is pushing it farther out, pushing it from the coast by another 455 meters.

The plan is to move the terminal 455 meters away from a port that's adjacent to an algal reef. This means the terminal would end up being 1.2 kilometers away from the coastline. The government says it will not dredge the area or harm the reef. It also won't fill in an area of 21 hectares that was originally designated for land reclamation. These changes to the project would push back its completion by two and a half years, meaning the terminal would only start supplying gas in June 2025. The changes would also increase costs by NT$15 billion. The economics minister says the government also assessed environmentalists' suggestions to move the project to ports in New Taipei Bali or Linkou districts. She says such relocations would delay completion by at least 11 years.

Wang Mei-hua
Economics minister
It would take another 11 years. And during that window of 11 years, there would be a lot of problems with our energy supply and the energy transition. So I hope that in the upcoming referendum, our efforts can persuade people to vote no on the algal reef question.

Chen Chi-chung
Agriculture minister
During the KMT administration, the plan for the port spanned 248 hectares. We have reduced that to just 96 hectares. But moving the project farther out means the port won't need to be dredged. Also, we won't have to reclaim land on the reef for the piers. The impact on the reef will be practically zero.

But the government's new proposal did not go down well with environmentalists.

Chen Hsien-cheng
Wild at Hart Legal Defense Association
First, the content of today's presentation was very rough. We ask the government to immediately release all the information on the relocation assessments. We think the Executive Yuan should give the people of Taiwan several options to choose from and not simply tell us there is only this one option to move the project out. This is absolutely not in line with the spirit of our referendum.

The proposal did not allay the concerns of environmentalists, who staged a protest outside the Executive Yuan. For at least the short term, the issue remains far from resolved.

護藻礁! 政院"三接外推455公尺" 延2年半完工

行政院長蘇貞昌今天(3日)中午與民進黨籍立委召開行政立法協調會報後,正式提出中油第三天然氣接收站外推方案,將工業港再外推455公尺,離岸1.2公里;粗估,得延後2年半,2025年6月才能供氣、預算增加新台幣150億元。不過,環團依舊不買單,在行政院記者會結束後,跑到行政院門口抗議。

行政院院長蘇貞昌找來黨團立委,邊吃便當邊召開行政、立法協調會報,為三接外推案找出解方。

[[經濟部長 王美花]]
"我們現在再把他往外推,再推個455公尺,讓它可以更離開岸邊"

將環團最在意的工業港,再外推455公尺,離岸1.2公里,不挖浚、不破壞礁體,原外海填區21公頃不填。但因應外推方案,三接將延後2年半,於2025年6月才能供氣,預算增加新台幣150億元。針對環團提出三接移至台北港或林口港,政院經過專業評估,2項遷移方案都須花上至少11年。

[[經濟部長 王美花]]
"勢必會有11年空窗期,那這個11年的空窗期,不管是在電力供應,不管是在能源轉型,都會有很大的傷害,希望針對這一題藻礁公投,可以因為我們這樣努力,投下不同意票"

[[農委會主委 陳吉仲]]
"原來國民黨時期工業港是248公頃,我們縮小方案是總共96公頃,可是這次的外移,整個工業港沒有浚深,碼頭又沒有填到藻礁,等同對藻礁的影響幾乎是到零了"

政府找出解方釋善意,但環團依舊不買單。

[[台灣蠻野心足生態協會理事長 陳憲政]]
"第一個,今天的簡報,方案內容非常草率,我們呼籲政府應該要立即提供所有公開資訊,公開評估遷址的資訊,我們認為行政院應該要給台灣人民複數選項,而不是只有告訴我們,只有外推方案,這跟我們公投本旨是完全不符合"

執政黨全力拆彈,環團仍不滿,到行政院門口表達反對,雜音還有待化解。
