which LNG exporting permits are reviewed and approved, the region’s
latest entrant into the market is wasting no time getting its
applications for export filed. Southern California Telephone &
Energy announced today that officials from their subsidy, SCT&E LNG,
have submitted their application with DOE to export LNG to countries
with whom the United States has a Free Trade Agreement.
Last month, SCT&E LNG announced
it had acquired more than 230 acres on Monkey Island to build an LNG
plant consisting of four trains capable of producing a combined annual
total of 4 million tons of LNG. Monkey Island is less than three miles
from the Gulf of Mexico.
SCT&E is based in Temecula, a city located about 11⁄2 hours southeast of Los Angeles. Please check back to this site for more updates.
