I guess to say things are “booming” in the liquefied natural gas business would be a poor choice of words. But the economic impact of the LNG plant in Cameron Parish in the southwest corner of Louisiana would certainly help fuel an economic explosion.

Officials of G2 LNG told the Lake Charles American Press newspaper that customer interest in the company’s products has resulted in a decision to expand the facility.

G2 LNG is based out of Baton Rouge and their original plan for the plan was to spend $11 billion on the facility that would cover approximately 766 acres of land. The announcement that an additional 500 acres would be procured will bring the total size of the facility to 1,266 acres. The plant will occupy a space on the west side of the Calcasieu ship channel. 

While the interest in the facility and the products it will produce are high. Those who’d like to become customers will have to wait just a little bit longer. Construction on the plant is expected to begin in 2018. Officials with G2 LNG are expecting production to commence by 2022.

The current economic benefit for Southwest Louisiana is the creation of some 3,500 construction jobs. The plant expects to create 250 permanent jobs once it is in operation at its location in Cameron Parish.
