G2 LNG plans to expand the site of its proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Cameron Parish, LA, by 500 acres to allow it to potentially export petrochemicals besides LNG.

“The expansion of our Cameron Parish, LA, location is in direct response to our customers’ increasing demands for both LNG and petrochemicals,” said G2 Chairman Charles Roemer, a former governor of Louisiana and former U.S. congressman.

With the additional acreage the G2 facility would cover 1,266 acres along the Calcasieu Ship Channel about three miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico.

“There are significant synergies in co-locating both LNG and petrochemical exporters on the same site,” said G2 LNG President Thomas Hudson. “Natural gas exists at a lower cost along the Gulf Coast than any other location in America and, at the same time, quality locations along the coast are becoming harder for project developers to find.”

G2 LNG is owned by Louisiana natives and headquartered in Baton Rouge.
