As the U.S. Department of Energy mulls possible changes to the manner in
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.
