The oil and gas industry is encroaching on the wetlands, dunes, beaches, and waterways of the Gulf Coast -- jeopardizing the health and wellbeing of the people and wildlife in the region. Now, oil company Sentinel Midstream and financier Freepoint Commodities are proposing to build a massive, dangerous crude export terminal off the coast of Freeport, Texas. The project is called the Texas GulfLink, and we have until January 4 to make our voices heard.
The GulfLink project includes a total of over 46 miles of pipeline, both on and offshore. The pipelines would traverse through fragile wetlands, the longtime industrially polluted Brazos River Delta, the Justin Hurst Wildlife Management Area, and out into gulf waters. A spill anywhere along the route will be nearly impossible to clean up, altering these fragile ecosystems forever.
The Army Corps has the authority to Stop GulfLink and protect the streams, rivers, and wetlands along the Gulf. We need you to help hold the Army Corps accountable - our waterways are too valuable to sacrifice for more oil exports. Take action and tell the Army Corps to stop GulfLink!
