Commitment to Safety
Safety is important to Golden Pass because we work here, we live here and our families and friends live here. It all starts with keeping everyone safe.
The Golden Pass expansion project would be constructed and operated with the same unwavering commitment to safety as the existing facilities. The existing Golden Pass import facility and pipeline were permitted and constructed under rigorous safety, security, and environmental standards. They were approved by FERC in 2005 and commissioned in 2010. Through construction and operation, the Golden Pass Terminal continues to demonstrate an excellent safety record, with more than six years without a lost time incident. Since operation, there have been zero lost-time injuries in the Golden Pass employee base.
Commitment to the Environment
Golden Pass is an excellent environmental steward. The expansion project would leverage the existing industrial footprint, minimizing environmental and community effects. Golden Pass donated more than 800 acres of forested wetlands in Texas and Louisiana for wildlife protection and ecosystem restoration to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Ducks Unlimited and Jefferson County, Texas. Additionally, Golden Pass provided more than 3 million cubic yards of material to restore areas within the J.D. Murphree Wildlife Management Area in Jefferson County, Texas, improving fisheries and wildlife habitats and providing a natural buffer to reduce storm energy from tropical storms and hurricanes.
Commitment to Community
Golden Pass is an engaged, responsible neighbor. We are committed to maintaining our relationship with the Sabine Pass and Southeast Texas communities throughout the development and operation of this new project. We meet regularly with our Community Advisory Panel - which includes representation from our neighbors in Sabine Pass, the city of Port Arthur, the Sabine Pass Independent School District, public officials, state agencies and other local organizations - to inform them about Golden Pass and listen to any questions or concerns. Golden Pass funded a new, $1.5 million community center for local residents in Sabine Pass, Texas.
