Busy Port could face LNG Standstill

In Boston, when Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) tankers arrive, the port is closed for an hour and all operations cease. This could pose a problem if plans come to fruition to build an LNG port in Long Beach, because of the port's integral role in the local economy. Luckily, there are other projects in the works to bring LNG into California that will minimize the impacts on International Trade.
