CMTA and a growing list of other business associations and businesses have joined to promote the siting of one or more liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities to serve California. The coalition, Californians for Clean Affordable and Safe Energy (Cal-CASE) will launch a web site and serve as an expert resource for media, policymakers, community groups and others interested in the safety, economic and environmental benefits of increasing natural gas supplies through LNG.

LNG is natural gas cooled and condensed to a liquid form and transportable by ship from producing regions to California where it can be stored, regasified and delivered through pipelines to businesses and consumers. While common throughout the world, LNG receiving terminals do not exist on the west coast.

CMTA and coalition members believe that the California economy depends on reliable new sources of natural gas to fuel electric power plants and industrial facilities and to serve household needs. Cleaner burning natural gas is also the best choice for the latest hybrid vehicles, increasingly seen as the solution to air quality problems in the state.

Cal-CASE invites companies to learn more about coalition activities by attending a meeting on December 14, 2005 in Sacramento. If you are interested in attending, or for more information about Cal-CASE, contact Dorothy Rothrock at drothrock@cmta.net or 916-498-3319.
