Proposed Fee on Transfer of LNG Could Limit Use of Texas Terminals

Cooper said, “It seems counterproductive to support and encourage the siting, construction and operation of LNG facilities and then take action that disadvantages the terminal owners’ and the capacity holders’ ability to bring LNG into those facilities.”
