THE WOODLANDS, Texas, June 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CB&I (NYSE:CBI) applauds Cameron LNG, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, for receiving authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to site, construct and operate a natural gas liquefaction and export facility at the site of the company's LNG receipt terminal in Hackberry, La.
The FERC permit is one of the last major regulatory approvals required to start construction on the natural gas liquefaction facility.
