Congressman Jeff Landry (R, LA-03) applauded today's approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) that allows Sabine Pass to expand its facilities and operations.
"I commend the FERC for approving this job-creating, energy project," said Landry. "The Sabine Pass expansion will help create tens of thousands of jobs in Southwest Louisiana and throughout the country. This wonderful project will help American producers be competitive in energy's global market and provide low-cost, domestically produced energy."
"South Louisiana is the lifeblood to America's economy, and I am thrilled the FERC's first authorization of a project exporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) from production resources within the United States is for Southwest Louisiana," continued Landry. "I am proud to have worked on the efforts to get this project approved and will continue to fight for American energy jobs."
Landry, a former oil and gas small business owner, sent a letter in September with the Louisiana delegation to the FERC requesting swift approval of the Sabine Pass LNG facility: http://landry.house.gov/press-release/landry-fights-sabine-pass-expansion.
