Freeport LNG Development LP and Port Freeport have begun to widen the Port Freeport harbor channel in Texas. The entrance and jetty sections of the Port Freeport ship channel will be widened from the existing 400 feet to 600 feet. The channel's reach extends from the port's sea buoy to the U.S. Coast Guard station in Surfside for about 6.1 miles. The work is to be completed in May. Freeport LNG owns and operates an existing liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification terminal located near Freeport, TX, and is developing a gas liquefaction and LNG export project there (see Daily GPI, Oct. 20).
