Sempra Energy (NYSE:SRE) says it filed applications with the FERC seeking authorization to build and operate the proposed Port Arthur LNG natural gas liquefaction facility in southeast Texas.

SRE also filed a separate application to build pipelines to bring natural gas to the site.

If successful, SRE would join Cheniere Energy LNG on the east bank of the Sabine-Neches Ship Channel where conversion to an export terminal is under way; Golden Pass, a project spearheaded by ExxonMobil, also is in the process of conversion to export.
