Scalise, Higgins Applaud Approval of Venture Global’s CP2 LNG Terminal

Today, House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) and Congressman Clay Higgins (R-La.) applauded the approval of Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass 2 LNG terminal by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
“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. 
“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,” said Congressman Higgins.
