Port of Gulfport energy project could grow to $1.8B

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - It's a project with an initial investment of $450 million at the Port of Gulfport, which could grow to $1.8 billion in the future.

SeaOne is developing an energy project at the port that will involve the production and shipment of a liquified gas product. The project has been in the planing process for six years.

Harrison County supervisors approved a tax exemption for the project Monday morning and the Gulfport City Council will consider that issue at a special meeting this afternoon.
