Federal court overturns Texas agency’s pollution permit for Gulf Coast natural gas export terminal

Judges overturned a state air pollution permit that was issued last year, arguing that the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality illegally enabled Port Arthur LNG to avoid emissions control requirements.

John Beard Jr., the founder and executive director of the Port Arthur Community Action Network, stands in front of the ExxonMobil and QatarEnergy’s Golden Pass LNG facility, just south of Port Arthur, Texas. Beard is a retired refinery worker who first challenged the Port Arthur LNG emissions permit.
