West Cameron Port won't interfere with Sempra Lease


The West Cameron Port officials say they will not interfere with the lease agreement with Sempra LNG.  The West Cameron Port is in a legal battle with the Port of Lake Charles over who has jurisdiction over the land where the LNG facility is located.

The Lake Charles Port owns the land and leases it to Sempra. The legal battle has to do with West Cameron's position that the Lake Charles Port can not develop land in their jurisdiction.

Either way, the West Cameron Port has agreed to honor the terms of the existing lease so that Sempra need not fear there will be lease problems if the Cameron Port prevails in court.

A hearing on the lawsuit is set before the Third Circuit Court of Appeal on October 13th.
