Golden Pass LNG is adding liquefaction and export capabilities to its existing facility in Sabine Pass, Texas. The facility is expected to be operational in 2024.
The project’s estimated send out capacity will be around 16 million tons of LNG per year. The new facility will utilize the existing state-of-the-art tanks, berths and pipeline infrastructure. In addition, new facilities for natural gas pre-treatment and liquefaction will also be constructed.
The expansion project is a partnership of Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil affiliates, two leading energy companies with an unrivaled record of producing, shipping and marketing natural gas globally.
The project is an approximately $10 billion investment in infrastructure on the Gulf Coast, which will generate billions of dollars of economic growth and millions of dollars in annual taxes to local, state and federal governments. It will also generate thousands of jobs during the construction phase and more than 200 permanent jobs once operational.
