LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - Trunkline LNG’s proposed plant expansion has reached the public comment stage and residents have about a month to let their voices be heard.

Brian Johnston, an environmental scientist with the state’s Department of Environmental Quality, says residents have until 4:30 p.m. April 20 to submit comments or requests for a public hearing on the project. Submissions can be made either through mail or through DEQ’s website.

The American Press reports (https://bit.ly/1xfuqlq ) Trunkline has been an import facility since opening in 1981. Now its parent company, Energy Transfer Equity, is looking to expand the plant with three new liquefaction trains that will produce about 13 tons of LNG each year for export.

Upon completion, the projected $11 billion expansion is expected to create about 250 permanent jobs.
