Our Impact

Golden Pass launched the Opportunity Roadmap in 2015 to help Southeast Texas residents and businesses join our growth in the area. We’ve enlisted more than 200 local businesses on a list of pre-screened vendors, held 12 job readiness training workshops with a total attendance of 165 and created partnerships with multiple local schools and organizations to ensure that together, we aid in creating a bright future for this area.

 
 

Our Programs

Local Business Initiative

The 2015 Local Business Initiative gave local businesses an opportunity to get "pre-screened" to compete for work with the proposed Golden Pass LNG export project.

Local businesses served: 150+
