Sempra plans LNG terminal...on Gulf Coast

Whether or not California builds an LNG terminal or two to meet its natural gas needs, the rest of the country isn't standing idly by as they seek to keep supplies up with demand:

Sempra Energy said yesterday it would begin construction within two months of its second North American liquefied natural gas receiving terminal, adding a site near Lake Charles, La., to a plant under construction near Ensenada in Baja California.

In moving ahead with the $700 million Louisiana project, Sempra said it had pre-sold about 40 percent of the facility's potential natural gas output to Eni S.p.A., an Italian energy company.

Buona fortuna, ma abbiamo bisogno di gaz naturale in California!
