Sempra secures final agreement for $6B LNG facility in La.
Gov. Bobby Jindal today joined Octavio Simoes, president of San Diego-based Sempra Energy's LNG operations, to announce the firm has secured the third and final commercial agreement to develop a $6 billion natural gas liquefaction export facility at the site of Sempra's existing receiving terminal in Cameron Parish. Construction on the plant will begin next year and take place in three phases, with the first liquefaction train slated to open in late 2016 and the other two trains to come online about five and 10 months later. The export facility is expected to add 130 new direct jobs, retain 60 existing jobs, and create an estimated 610 permanent new indirect jobs, along with 3,000 construction jobs during peak activity. "Facilities like this will help support thousands of jobs in the energy industry across our state and will ensure quality jobs for Louisiana families for years to come," Jindal says. Details and quotes from today's announcement are available at the governor's website here.
