In a meeting with representatives of the Environment and Housing Ministries and the Oil and Energy Infrastructure Company, the National Infrastructures Ministry requested that those present examine the construction of a liquid natural gas (LNG) facility in Acre, the ministry said Tuesday. Pollution at the site, formerly used by Electrochemical Industries, would make clean-up for housing, or tourism projects too costly, but the site could be prepared for industrial uses, the ministry argued. The site would allow for a second source of natural gas in addition to the gas expected to come from Egypt by 2007, the ministry said.
