G2 LNG announced plans Tuesday to expand its planned facility in Cameron Parish.
The proposed 500-acre expansion will meet the demands of potential customers for the export of petrochemicals, according to a news release from the company.
“The expansion of our Cameron Parish, Louisiana, location is in direct response to our customers’ increasing demands for both LNG and petrochemicals,” said former Louisiana governor Buddy Roemer, chairman of G2 LNG. “We are excited to exercise this land option, increase our overall footprint and move forward with one of the largest overall projects the State of Louisiana has ever seen.”
With the expansion, the G2 LNG export facility will cover 1,266 acres of land along the Calcasieu Ship Channel.
“This is an exciting diversification for Cameron Parish,” said Clair Marceaux, Executive Director of the Cameron Port. “The petrochemical project, in addition to the LNG facility, will provide thousands of construction jobs, opportunities for vendors from our local communities and hundreds of well-paying permanent jobs. We are working closely with G2’s management team to coordinate communication among our parish residents, local businesses and parish government leaders as a result of this expanded opportunity.”
