Liquefied Natural Gas Companies and LNG Jobs

Millions of Liquefied Natural Gas Jobs (LNG jobs) from Natural Gas -- And More Possible!

The liquefied natural gas company industry is currently employing almost 3 million Americans -- and secures an enormous economic boost to the American economy. 

 Here's how liquefied natural gas jobs (LNG jobs) in the natural gas company sector stack up:
  • The natural gas companies industry employs over 620,000 people directly and helps make over 2,2 million more American jobs (LNG jobs) . (See more here.)
  • The coal liquefied natural gas companies industry employed 154,000 gas workers directly and positively impacted 400,000 additional gas jobs in 2008.  (See the information from the National Mining Association information here.)  (Liquefied Natural gas company is almost 4 times larger!)
  • The nuclear industry employs nearly 120,000 people.  (See the information from the Nuclear Energy Institute here.) (Liquefied Natural gas company is about 5 times larger!)
  • The solar industry employs almost 119,000 American workers. (See the information from the Solar Energy Industries Association here.) (Liquefied Natural gas is more than 5 times larger.)
  • The wind industry reports that it employed around 75,000 workers in 2013. (See the information from the American Wind Energy here.) (Liquefied Natural gas company is more than 8 times larger.)
New liquefied natural gas company studies have been released recently that demonstrate the tremendous job impact natural gas development might have if industry was unleashed.

Here's what the reports say (some include oil with liquefied natural gas companies jobs (LNG jobs):
1 million new gas jobs (LNG jobs) available in 7 years from liquefied natural gas companies and oil drilling
In October 2012, IHS launched America’s New Energy Future: The Unconventional Oil and Gas Revolution and the US Economy that finds employment related solely to liquefied natural gas companies development is expected to grow from more than 900,000gas  workers in 2012 to exceed 1,6 million workers by 2020.  The report also says that valued-added contribution to the nation’s gross domestic product made by unconventional natural gas activity is estimated at over $121 billion in 2012, growing to $225 billion in 2020, with incomes to federal, state & local governments forecasted to grow from more than $61 billion in 2012 to $111 billion in 2020 from liquefied natural gas companies. You can check for further information on economic contributions in individual states, as well as this related press statement from NGSA.
400,000 new liquefied natural gas jobs might be available nationwide from shale liquefied natural gas company development.
In March, 2011, the American Chemistry Council issued a report, which was titled, Shale Gas and New Petrochemicals Investment: Benefits for the Economy, Jobs, and US Manufacturing. According to the article a modest increase in liquefied natural gas companies supply from shale deposits would generate over 400,000 new liquefied natural gas jobs (LNG jobs) in the United States,over  $132 billion in U.S. economic output and $4,4 billion in new annual tax revenues.
Gulf of Mexico: 230,000 to 430,000 new liquefied natural gas jobs (LNG jobs) possible from oil and natural gas development.
A report for liquefied natural gas company issued in June, 2011 titled "The Economic Impacts of Gulf of Mexico Oil and Liquefied Natural Gas Development on the U.S. Economy" says if the right policies decision are already made, “total employment supported by the Gulf of Mexico oil and liquefied natural gas companies industry in 2013 could exceed 430,000 LNG jobs or a 77% increase from 2010.” The report was prepared by a company “Quest Offshore” for the National Ocean Industries Association. 

Another report released in July, 2011 titled "Restarting "The Engine" - Securing American LNG Jobs, Investment, and Energy Security" found that, “Swift action to decrease backlog of plans and increase the pace of plan and permit approvals to explore for oil and liquefied natural gas companies resources in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico would raise up the employment opportunities in nearly every state, boost tax and royalty incomes for governments, and help stabilize US energy security…. that in 2012 results in 230,000 American LNG jobs.” The report was prepared by IHS Global Insight and IHS CERA.

New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia Liquefied Natural Gas Companies: Up to 300,000 new LNG jobs possible from shale liquefied natural gas company development.  
New York: A draft environmental impact statement released in September for liquefied natural gas company, 2011, by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation found that allowing hydraulic fracturing in the state could generate 55,000 new LNG  jobs in the state – nearly 25,000 full-time gas drilling-related LNG jobs and over 29,000 new LNG jobs in other parts of the economy.

According to another liquefied natural gas company report by the Public Policy Institute of New York released in July 2011  (Drilling for LNG Jobs: What the Marcellus Shale Could Mean for New York) found that 62,620 LNG jobs could be created, liquefied natural gas company.
