WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) and House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) released a statement on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) approval for Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass II LNG Project (CP2), a natural gas liquefaction export terminal in Cameron Parish.


“I commend the Commission for their review and approval of Venture Global’s CP2 facility,” said Congressman Higgins. “This project is a significant win that will bring jobs and economic prosperity to Southwest Louisiana. The CP2 natural gas pipeline and corresponding export terminal are critical to our global energy security, as it supplies clean-burning American natural gas to the world. My office will continue to do everything we can at the federal level to advance policies that support American energy dominance.”


“In the wake of President Biden’s reckless decision to halt approvals for new LNG projects, and after unnecessary delays, today’s decision by the commission to move forward with Venture Global’s CP2 is welcome news for Louisiana and America’s energy security and our national security,” said Majority Leader Scalise. 


In April, Congressman Clay Higgins and House Majority Leader Steve Scalise sent a letter to FERC Chairman Willie Phillips urging approval of the project. Read more on the letter here.
