    [Office of U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein]
    September 30, 2003

    Mayor Beverly O’Neill
    City of Long Beach
    333 West Ocean Boulevard
    Long Beach, CA 90802

    Dear Mayor O’Neill:

    Thank you for your recent letter expressing your support for the development of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving and gasification terminal at the Port of Long Beach. Like you, I recognize that a safe, abundant, and reliable supply of natural gas for California is critical to our State’s economy, and to our environment.

    An LNG terminal in the Port of Long Beach could have a significant impact on prices of natural gas, electricity generation, and other utilities and commodities in California. Moreover, I understand that LNG is an increasingly popular alternative to diesel as a fuel for heavy-duty vehicles. In short, LNG is an attractive means of satisfying our State's increasing demand for natural gas and clean vehicle fuels.

    I am pleased to join you in supporting continued investigation of the development of an LNG receiving and gasification terminal at the Port of Long Beach.

    I will closely follow the project's progress through the rigorous permitting and entitlement process. Please contact me if I can be of assistance with the City's work on this exciting endeavor.

    Sincerely yours, s/ [Sen. Feinstein]
