Pacific LNG consortium is composed of the British multinationals BG Group and Pan-American Energy.

Pacific LNG is behind the $5 billion plan to export gas from Bolivia, which consists of a 700km pipeline from Bolivia to a port in Chile from where gas would be [liquified and] shipped to Mexico. There the shipment would be converted from its liquefied form back into a gas by the American company Sempra Energy Corp. and imported in California via a pipeline running from Baja California.

The San Diego-based Sempra has been in negotiations since December of 2001 with Pacific LNG for a 20-year contract amounting to $7 billion. [ibid]
