Port of Lake Charles

G2X Energy Inc. of Houston says it plans a $1.3 billion plant to turn natural gas into gasoline at the Port of Lake Charles.

Louisiana Economic Development said Tuesday it would create 243 jobs averaging $66,500 a year.

They say G2X will lease 200 acres at the Industrial Canal where it can ship gas by pipeline or sea. However, a final decision is waiting on more feasibility analysis.
