Why are Jaxport tenants buying LNG ships and a company that already has
an LNG export license?
And why is Jaxport so interested in becoming a major player in natural gas?
All reports agree this liquid natural gas (LNG) facility

and some say its gas will come from a pipeline.
But are trucks and buses really the only destination for that pipelined
gas, or is it also intended for export, as
the U.S. House subcommittee chaired by
Ted Poe of Houston (home of Spectra Energy)
recently advocated at great length?
