More jobs, more prosperity
The Liquefaction Project (Trains 1-3) and the proposed Expansion Project represent a significant investment in U.S. energy infrastructure that will create jobs, support the economy, help small businesses grow and help America’s trading partners in Europe and Asia.
- Cameron LNG will add nearly 6,500 jobs during the peak of construction of Trains 1-3, approximately 160 full-time jobs here at the liquefaction facility and 60 full-time positions at Cameron LNG’s headquarters in Houston, Tx.
- Cameron LNG has over 200 employees at the liquefaction facility and approximately 50 employees at Cameron LNG’s headquarters in Houston, Texas.
Improving Economic Security:
- The Liquefaction Project (Trains 1-3) will invest approximately $10 billion in new facilities, equipment and labor, thereby, supporting economic growth.
- Additional investments will be made with the Expansion Project, consisting of two more Trains. Nationally, LNG exports have the potential to generate hundreds of millions of dollars in economic development and new tax revenue.
- The 2012 NERA study released by the DOE confirms that providing U.S. natural gas resources to global markets will net benefit the U.S. economy under all scenarios considered. Further, those benefits increase as the level of exports increase.
LNG Export Capacity:
- Cameron LNG is capable of exporting roughly 625 TBTU of LNG. This is enough natural gas to run approximately 10 large power generation stations for a year.
