Another offshore LNG project for California?

Reported here:
A second Australian company has surfaced with plans to anchor a liquefied natural gas terminal somewhere off the coast of Southern California, but the company will not say exactly where the terminal will be placed, although the Malibu coast is a possibility...

...LNG opponents have noted that the possibility of catastrophic terrorist attacks, industrial accidents or midsea collisions would remain under either plan, risking explosive venting of huge amounts of methane that some critics say would spread over miles of open ocean and, if ignited, burn structures onshore.
