Cheniere is proud to play a leading role in the development of a clean, safe and environmentally friendly source of energy to the North American marketplace.
At Cheniere, our emphasis is on environmentally sound day to day business operations. The design of our infrastructure, our operations practices and our involvement in the communities that house our facilities are excellent examples of our living commitment to the environment.
Cheniere's LNG terminal and pipeline designs meet or exceed U.S. federal codes and standards. We work with and have support from the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the U.S. Coast Guard as well as a myriad of state and local agencies as part of an ongoing effort to ensure that we have the best technology available to manage safety and environmental challenges at all locations. One example of this commitment is Cheniere's state-of-the-art tug boats. We are pioneering the use of the first tug boats in Corpus Christi and Sabine Pass which are equipped with onboard fire-fighting capabilities.
With no major public safety or environmental incidents in the last 60 years, the LNG industry is one of the cleanest and safest industries in North America. Cheniere's responsibility to uphold the industry standard is reflected in our goals for incident free facilities and operation. Our employees, contractors and guests are required to conduct themselves with an emphasis on safety and environmental awareness when they are at any Cheniere site.
Cheniere invests time to develop strong community relationships and believes in the importance of earning a community's trust before asking for its support. We are proud to be contributing to several notable projects designed to support environment recovery efforts.
During our development, Cheniere is making efforts to restore the marsh environment and coastline in southwest Louisiana and Texas. By working closely with the states of Texas and Louisiana and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers utilizing the dredging materials from our terminal construction, Cheniere will be building up the depleting coastline at Louisiana Point. A similar approach will be used to improve important habitat near our Corpus Christi site.
Near our Sabine Pass location, Cheniere is participating in the effort to preserve the historic Sabine Pass Lighthouse. This structure was built in 1857, has survived the Civil War and numerous hurricanes. It is registered with the Louisiana Historical Registry as an Endangered Historical Place.
Every step of the way, from transportation to trade, we are working diligently to offer North America a clean source of energy, delivered safely and with respect for the environment.
