Local Business Initiative Impact

Golden Pass Products announced the Local Business Initiative in October 2015. The Local Business Initiative gave local businesses an opportunity to get “pre-screened” to compete for work with the proposed Golden Pass LNG export project. Businesses that successfully completed pre-screening were placed on a list for priority consideration that was presented to the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) Contractor. The EPC contractor referred to this list when soliciting vendors and suppliers.
