Puget Sound Energy LNG facility

Project overview

Puget Sound Energy plans to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility at the Port of Tacoma.

The proposed facility will provide local transportation companies with a cleaner fuel alternative, including TOTE Maritime Alaska vessels. It will also provide PSE residential and commercial customers with natural gas reserves to maintain dependable service on the coldest days of the year.
