Louisiana Illuminator: Environmental groups seek federal intervention for Calcasieu Pass LNG terminal they deem polluter

Virginia-based liquified natural gas (LNG) company Venture Global has been on a learning curve since it opened its Calcasieu Pass terminal in Cameron Parish last year.

The learning curve, as tallied by the Louisiana Bucket Brigade, has been steep, replete with more than 2,000 entry points. That’s how many times the Bucket Brigade says that Venture Global violated, or deviated from, its pollutant-permitting allowances, established by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) to govern emissions of carbon, nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds, among others.
