Magnolia LNG and Lake Charles Expansion Projects, Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a notice of intent to prepare an EIS for a proposal to build and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility on land at the Port of Lake Charles. (DOE became a cooperating agency after this notice was issued. DOE, Office of Fossil Energy, has an obligation under Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act to authorize the import and export of natural gas, including LNG, unless it finds that the import or export is not consistent with the public interest.)
