As the first to market and a pioneer in the U.S. LNG industry, we know what it takes to succeed. Developing the next generation of LNG professionals is a challenge we embrace.

Our apprenticeship program attracts, trains and empowers local students to take the next step in a career in LNG. Partnering locally with SOWELA Technical Community College (in Louisiana) and Del Mar College (in Texas), colleges recommend high-performing students who meet academic requirements and possess a desire to work in field operations. Those who apply, complete the work and progress are rewarded financially with grants to offset the cost of tuition.

Your journey into LNG

Students begin a two-semester journey, which includes training, hands-on experience at the site and working with mentors. Working with experienced professionals at site and professors in the classroom, these students are evaluated along the way and provided feedback to help them succeed. Those selected work at our facilities and gain two years of experience in either process technology, instrumentation technology or millwright.
