Corpus Christi Port Hopes to Export Natural Gas Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Apr 9, 2014, 07:45 PM

The Corpus Christi Port in Texas has endorsed US Congress legislation to permit US companies to export domestic natural gas to foreign countries.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "Selling more U.S. natural gas to foreign buyers would mean economic gains that flow well beyond the oil field, a Corpus Christi port official told lawmakers Wednesday."

The Corpus Christi Port believes that natural gas exports would create 8,000 permanent jobs for the local region, along with 1,800 construction jobs.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "Judy Hawley, chair of the Corpus Christi port commission, said the evidence is in her backyard, where Cheniere Energy hopes to build a $12 billion facility to liquefy natural gas and ship it around the globe."

Nevertheless, Daniel Weiss, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, a Hillary Clinton for President think tank, is denouncing calls for natural gas exports.
