Bryant looking to center new industry around Natural Gas terminal

OCEAN SPRINGS, Mississippi — With a focus on manufacturing, Gov.-elect Phil Bryant said Gulf LNG Energy’s $1.1 billion liquefied natural gas facility on Bayou Casotte should present ample opportunity for job creation.

The lieutenant governor was in Ocean Springs on Thursday night to speak at the Jackson County Economic Development Foundation’s Annual Investors Dinner.

It was Bryant’s first major address on the Gulf Coast since he took 61 percent of the vote in the gubernatorial race against Johnny DuPree on Nov. 8.
