Sempra Energy has passed another milestone on the road to building its liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Port Arthur, Texas. The corporation said the project received its final environmental impact statement from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which has yet to approve the project.
Carlos Ruiz Sacristán, CEO of Sempra’s North American Infrastructure Group, characterized the federal review as positive. The review also covers two pipelines associated with the LNG plant.
Sempra (NYSE: SRE) has interest from South Korea and Poland to receive shipments from Port Arthur. As yet the San Diego corporation has not made an investment decision to build the plant.
Sempra made the announcement on Jan. 31.
