Five liquefied natural gas companies have partnered with the World Trade Center of New Orleans to form the Louisiana Energy Export Association to educate the public and lobby lawmakers.
“By putting all of our member companies’ work under one umbrella, we can show the state what kind of impact the LNG industry has,” said Jason French, group chairman and vice president of government and public affairs at Tellurian.
The member companies — G2, Lake Charles LNG, Magnolia LNG, Tellurian and Venture Global — announced the association’s formation before the state House Natural Resources Committee on Wednesday.
The Louisiana Oil and Gas Association and the Louisiana Mid Continental Oil and Gas Association are associate members.
Together, the member companies represent over $60 billion in upcoming investments in Louisiana’s economy, French said.
