SCT&E LNG Chairman Greg Michaels and his executive team met with the Cameron Parish Police Jury in its monthly public meeting.
SCT&E LNG, a subsidiary of Southern California Telephone & Energy (SCT&E), was scheduled on the Police Jury Docket to formally announce its twelve million tpa LNG liquefaction project on Monkey Island.
During the meeting, the Cameron Parish Police Jury decided to fund US$ 150 000 for a feasibility study to determine the construction of one or more bridges across the Cameron Loop, linking Monkey Island once again with the Cameron Parish mainland.
"The announcement of the funding of the feasibility study in the presence of the SCT&E LNG executive team was meant as a show of support for the SCT&E LNG Liquefaction Project," says Stephen Broussard, Director of the West Cameron Port Commission.
The construction of the bridge will support the development of the SCT&E LNG project site. The SCT&E LNG liquefaction project is expected to bring several thousand jobs during the construction of the project and at least 200 permanent jobs to Cameron, Louisiana.
Chairman Greg Michaels announced in the meeting that the company had plans to amend its original application with the Department of Energy (DOE) from 4 million tpa to 12 million tpa and that the project will be completed over three phases.
The original estimated cost to develop Phase 1 of the LNG manufacturing and export terminal is approximately US$ 2.4 billion.
