Golden Pass LNG Sponsors Energy Day 2013

October 19, 2013

October 19, 2013 – Golden Pass LNG today participated in Houston’s third annual Energy Day Festival, a family-friendly educational event that celebrates the importance of energy in our daily lives.  Golden Pass was a Silver Sponsor of the event and hosted a booth featuring interactive, educational games to provide hands-on learning experience for children and their families.

Golden Pass employees taught attendees about natural gas, LNG and the export process:

  • LNG Value Chain game illustrated the LNG life cycle, from exploration and production through shipping LNG to end-users across the globe.  Participants placed magnetic LNG carriers on a path to the country of their choice and chose the end-user of the gas in that country (hospital, bus, etc.)
  • Natural Gas Uses game showed the many ways natural gas is used in our daily lives, such as cooking, electricity and transportation.  The game started with a “townscape” and participants placed magnetic electrical outlets, cars, stoves and other items in place to complete the picture.
  • LNG Fun Facts game featured interesting facts about the GPLNG terminal and the economic benefits of the Golden Pass Products export project.  Participants read each question and removed magnetic panels to find the answers.

The event also featured a volume reduction display that illustrated how the liquefaction process reduces natural gas to 1/600th of its original size.

Golden Pass held a drawing for two iPad minis, which were presented to winners at the event.

Energy Day 2013 was presented by the Consumer Energy Alliance, the University of Houston, the city of Houston and more than 100 sponsors.  More than 20,000 people attended this year’s event. 



The Golden Pass LNG Terminal near Sabine Pass, Texas, is a joint venture formed by affiliates of three of the world’s largest and most experienced oil and gas companies: Qatar Petroleum (70%), ExxonMobil (17.6%) and ConocoPhillips (12.4%). Completed in 2010, the Golden Pass LNG Terminal is among the largest in the world, capable of importing approximately 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day through its dual berth ship docks.
