LNG Security and SVSS - Any Link?

At "An Unofficial Coast Guard Blog" Joe Coastie "Whats all this LNG Hubbub, points us to this article about the Coast Guard and LNG terminal security in The Daily Astorian. Also The Bitter End directs us to this article at NAVAGEAR . The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced a new Small Vessel Security Strategy (SVSS) designed to close security gaps and reduce risks associated with the potential exploitation of small maritime vessels.

Any relationship? Oil supplies might be getting tight but there is lots of LNG in Qatar, for example. LNG is cleaner then oil or coal and puts out less CO2 emissions per BTU. Is someone giving LNG terminal security some hard thought? Or is it just port security in general?
