"‘Hubris’: LNG Plant Officials Saw Trouble Days Before Blast"

"For at least two days before a pipe exploded at its Texas gas export terminal, Freeport LNG had been trying to figure out what was wrong, records show.

The June 8 blast forced the plant to close and took almost a fifth of U.S. liquefied natural gas exports offline.

But there is no indication in an investigatory report obtained by E&E News that the company stopped operating to fix the problem before the explosion. An industrial safety expert called that an expensive mistake."
