WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today toured Sempra Energy’s LNG project in Cameron Parish with President Donald Trump and Louisiana’s congressional delegation. The project is an example of how Louisiana is a leader in LNG exports.
Sempra just completed construction on the first phase of a $10 billion facility that will eventually be able to meet the daily power needs of 8.5 million U.S. homes. Sempra is supported by the Port of Lake Charles, where 85% of the tonnage is energy cargo. President Trump recently signed executive orders that promise to further unleash American energy by removing burdensome regulations.
“The president’s visit to Cameron Parish allowed us to showcase Louisiana’s leading role in the energy industry. Sempra’s LNG facility created thousands of jobs and promises to power millions of homes,” said Sen. Kennedy. “President Trump recognizes the importance of the energy industry to the American economy. He’s sweeping away roadblocks that stand in the way of job growth. He is a true friend to the Louisiana energy industry.”
