Annova LNG and Exelon Generation will hold an informational community open house on 21 April.
The event, which will take place at the Brownsville Events Centre in Brownsville, Texas (4:00 – 7:00 pm), is designed to inform and update residents on the proposed Annova LNG Brownsville Project and LNG.
Technical experts from Annova, Exelon, the energy industry, plus academics and other officials will be on hand to talk to residents and answer questions. They will discuss topics including safety, economic benefits, environment and the job opportunities the facility could provide if built.
David Chung, Annova President, explained: "LNG operators have amassed 60 years of safe transportation and operational experience worldwide with little or no impact to the general public. Annova LNG and Exelon Generation are committed to a consistent, long-term relationship with the community that emphasises clear facts and inclusiveness throughout the life of this potential facility. This open house will be a great first step in building that relationship."
The Annova LNG Brownsville Project is contingent upon Annova successfully obtaining all necessary local, state and federal permits; acquisition of sufficient long-term customer commitments to buy LNG from the facility; and broad public support of the project in South Texas. A decision on whether or not to build to project is expected by the end of 2017.
Construction of the project would support an average of 675 on-site jobs over a four-year period, which translates to approximately US$324 million in direct labor income for Texans. Once operational, the facility would employ about 165 workers.
