“Southwest Louisiana is a key player in the global LNG industry, so we felt it only fitting to work with other local partners to bring the 2021 World LNG & Gas Series: America’s Summit to Lake Charles,” said Mayor Nic Hunter.

“This high-level summit was extremely successful, attracting CEOs from major companies and generating positive media attention at the state, regional and national levels. It was our pleasure to host an event of this magnitude in Southwest Louisiana, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to build on that success and continue the conversation about the future of energy later this year when the Summit returns ‘ Hunter said.

“With two active LNG exporters, one more preparing to begin operations in February and a further five LNG export projects under development, Cameron Parish Port, Harbor & Terminal District is undeniably a global leader in the LNG export industry.

The Americas Summit is the longest running LNG and gas event in the Americas region.

“As 2022 begins, the Lake Area is poised to host a series of conventions, groups and meetings.
