Sound Energy Solutions, a partnership of ConocoPhillips and Mitsubishi Corp., filed a lawsuit on Feb. 8 seeking to revive its proposed $750-million, 800-million-cu-ft liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing terminal in Long Beach Harbor, Calif. City officials terminated the project last month. The company filed a writ in Los Angeles County Superior Court to compel the Long Beach Harbor Board of Commissioners to complete an environmental impact report on the project. The company charges that the commissioners violated California environmental laws by not completing a final report. The commissioners unanimously voted to end work on the environmental document after years of consideration due to legal and safety issues.
