Puget Sound Energy (PSE), Washington’s oldest energy utility, has begun construction of a US$310 million Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facility at the Port of Tacoma. The project is expected to be completed and fully operational in 2021.
The LNG facility will be used to fuel ships and provide natural gas to residential and commercial customers during peak cold weather demands. It will not be used for exports.
