LNG dredging will help marshes a few miles away

PORT ARTHUR – Dredging to make room for deep-water ship berths needed for new liquefied natural gas terminals will lead to a side benefit of stronger wetlands a few miles west in an area popular with fishermen and duck hunters.

With the addition of the Golden Pass LNG terminal, which started construction last week, and other potential projects on the way, the character of the area north of Sabine Pass could change drastically in the next few years – many believe for the better.
