Opportunity Roadmap

The Opportunity Roadmap will connect local people and businesses with opportunities created by industrial development in Southeast Texas.

The proposed Golden Pass Products LNG export project is expected to create thousands of construction jobs and hundreds of permanent jobs.  It would also generate economic gains in many industries including retail, construction, manufacturing, business services and transportation.  Golden Pass LNG is committed to helping local residents and businesses be a part of the growth. 

Golden Pass has created a set of programs - the Opportunity Roadmap - to do just that.  The Opportunity Roadmap will include initiatives to help businesses, job seekers and others in the community.

Local Business Initiative

The first phase of the Opportunity Roadmap, the Local Business Initiative, gives local businesses an opportunity to get “pre-screened” to work with the proposed Golden Pass LNG export project.

Businesses that successfully complete the pre-screening process will be placed on a list for priority consideration.  Golden Pass will provide that list to the project Engineering, Procurement and Construction contractor, who will refer to this list when soliciting vendors and suppliers.

The “no fee” application process for Jefferson County businesses closed December 15, 2015.  All businesses are welcome to continue submitting applications, but are responsible for Veriforce application fees.  Golden Pass has hired Veriforce, an expert in contractor screening, to facilitate the application process.

Applicants are welcome to continue submitting applications for future consideration.

  2. Upon completion, your application will be evaluated by Golden Pass.  Those who meet the pre-screening criteria will be placed on the list for the EPC contractor.

  3. The EPC contractor will refer to the pre-screened list when soliciting vendors and suppliers for the project.


Placement on the EPC list does not guarantee work for the project. Businesses on the list will receive priority consideration for work on the project, but must complete the qualification process and meet all Golden Pass project requirements in order to compete for selection.
