Why This Report? In 2004, two major industrial developments—a liquid natural gas (LNG) regasification facility by Houston-based DKRW Energy and a “clean fuels” refinery by Arizona Clean Fuels of Phoenix, Arizona-- were announced by their promoters as planned for Puerto Libertad, Sonora and Tacna, Arizona, respectively. The two facilities, along with their accompanying Mexican ports and new pipelines, could have environmental impacts on both the Gulf of California and protected lands in Sonora and Arizona.
