HACKBERRY, La. (AP) - San Diego-based Sempra Energy has asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for permission to begin building natural gas liquefaction and export facilities at the company's existing Cameron LNG terminal in Hackberry.
Sempra said on Monday the permit request is an important milestone in the company's effort to begin exporting liquefied natural gas.
According to Sempra, the project would create nearly 3,000 construction jobs and about 130 full-time jobs when the facility begins operating.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/W00YZS ) the federal agency will review the application and conduct an environmental study of the project before acting on the permit. Additional permits and approvals will be required before construction on the Cameron liquefaction project can be completed.
