Local Industries Have a Positive Economic Impact
Local industries have a positive economic impact in Southwest Louisiana. Their tax dollars are used to improve our roads and parks, upgrade equipment for area law enforcement, and to better our educational system.
Local LNG industries put our area on the global map as the largest exporter of liquified natural gas in the country. Natural gas is a cleaner-burning, abundant and affordable source of energy. When LNG is converted back to natural gas, it can be used instead of coal, reducing carbon emissions to the air by over 50%. With additional projects federally approved in SWLA, we are well-positioned to continue to be a world-wide leader in the LNG industry.
