Scott is a passionate industry professional dedicated to transferring cutting edge industry focused innovations and trends while highlighting the men and women who would keep the world moving. So put on your hard hat, grab your murdy foods, 00:21 and let's go Alright, once again, thank you very much for joining industrial taka platform. This platform industrial talk platform is dedicated to industry heroes all around the world because you're a bold, brave, dare greatly collaborate, solve problems, making my life better and making a world a better place to live. Thank you. That's why we celebrate you. On this episode. We are talking LNG we are talking about development. We're talking about everything. Utilities, energy, you name it with Clair, Marcia. No, I know her as Clair Hebert. Marceaux was her last name. And she brings the lumber she has tremendous, tremendous experience. She's She's a firecracker. Let's get cracking. Yeah, Clair is wonderful. Now if you ever come down here to Southwest Louisiana, you'll notice that there's some LNG terminals. And if you've never seen an LNG terminal, put that on your bucket list because I gotta tell you, I remember the first time I saw an LNG terminal, I think I was fishing. And we were tootling around and about. And you realize the incredible engineering that went into building an LNG terminal, it's you can't stop staring at it. It is massive. And it is an amazing feat. And they are delivering and providing services that are just so needed specially in today's market. But Clair knows everything about it. She's from Southwest, Louisiana, she's been involved with a lot of the economic developments associated with LNG terminals, she's got a utility pedigree, second to none, she knows what's going on. She's an amazing professional, and definitely a paper and pencil conversation in a big way. Now, before we get into that conversation, I gotta put this, put this out there I will, or we will be on site at IMTS, which is the I want to say international manufacturing and technology show that is September 12, through the 17th McCormick Place Chicago, Illinois. And it is if you're in manufacturing, you need to be there. If you are interested in manufacturing solutions, and how to create a more resilient manufacturing, process business, whatever it might be, you need to be there. That is the I M T s conference, September 12, through 17 McCormick Place. And if you want to talk to me, if you're gonna say, Scott, I do but I want to make sure that I that I can connect with you. I'll be there be there on the floor. And we're going to be interviewing a lot of the great professionals that are impacting in a positive way. All of the stuff that's taking place in manufacturing. So put that on your calendar importante. All right. The other thing I want to just sort of point out so 03:27 Arduino ARDU i n o. R do we know they are a new, a new sponsor with industrial talk. So I'm out at their website. And one of the things that I'm always interested in is how do you bring this incredible digital transformation solution to small to mid sized businesses so that they can benefit from all of the wonderful things that are taking place within industrial in digital transformation. Arduino has the solution. And and there are they've been around for a long time they have tremendous street cred they've got an open source solution for you as a manufacturing you and industry if you need to end they've got the resource think at the bench to be able to help you determine and decide what is important to your organism to your line, whatever your organization so it's it's important because the reality is is that you need to be a part of this digital transformation journey and you need to find trusted individuals, trusted companies are doing you know that's a r d u i n o the website is a rduino.cc Find out more. I mean I'm out there on their website and I'm an every time I have a conversation with them. I just sort of route around their website. They've got everything, all the education that you need. Arduino big time. You eat them. All right, let's get on with conversation. Clair reached out, I worked with Clair in the past. And it was a great experience she is she has the finger on the pulse of everything that's sort of happening here and in Louisiana from a development perspective, and just tremendous pedigree when it comes to energy, utilities, and she knows exactly what's going on paper and pencil Most definitely. And reach out to her. I highly just just just gotta go. It'll be out on industrial talk, trust me. But you just got to go to her LinkedIn profile, reach out to her and and be a part of her network because she, she really does. She delivers value added value content, valued insights. And again, if we are about education, and collaborating and innovating, you need to constantly connect with people like Clair. All right, let's get on. Enjoy the conversation with Clair. Clair, welcome to industrial talk. Thank you for reconnecting with me. God, God, it was exciting listeners share this out of the blue. Clair just reached out. And like like it just a flood of history just sort of went right into my head, Clair, thank you for doing that. 06:20 Thank you for welcoming me. It was really good to reconnect with you. I appreciate it brought back some really good memories. Yeah. 06:27 Yeah. What was it was like LNG stuff. What was our What was our connection? I can't remember. 06:34 It was development of various project ideas in in Southwest Louisiana and part of the energy transition revolution, whatever you want to refer to it, as I'm happy to consider, but yeah, just working on projects and finding ways to amplify what was happening, and it's still happening. 06:53 And it's happening like crazy. Do you find and I'm sorry, for digressing, listeners, we're gonna get into the conversation, however. Is the capital available out there? I mean, is the money sort of flown down here in Louisiana, or 07:08 all signs point to yes, projects or projects are still under development. You know, we've got roughly 50 billion already in the ground projects that are exporting liquefied natural gas. Each day, it changes in terms of the United States producing or exporting more than equal to Australia, Qatar. And so it's a the charts fluctuate daily, but we're right up there. And that's being driven by that roughly 50 billion in liquefied natural gas export project development capital expenditure, then we're looking at another 40 billion plus in projects that are under development, they're waiting for their federal energy regulatory commission licenses, they're waiting for their final investment decisions to be made. You know, these are projects that are well years into development where there waterway suitability assessments are done there right of way for pipeline has been approved. These are projects that are 456 years into development that are waiting any day really, 08:11 this is all in the Kalka Shu parish area is that where all this money or 08:15 where so let's be clear, this is something that's really important to me. Cameron parish, Cameron, Cameron parish, which is the second largest parish in the state of Louisiana and land area, and has the second smallest population we're roughly 1300 square miles in Cameron parish. And I say we because that's where I was born and raised and live there now. Cameron parish is home to and for those who are geographically challenged or not familiar, if you imagine that Louisiana is shaped like a boot that one would wear on its foot in New Orleans is the toe. Cameron is the heel. Cameron is right up against Texas and the Gulf of Mexico, making it a very strategic location. It is immediately south of campus you perish. However, there aren't any exporters of liquefied natural gas in Kalka Shu. So they're all in Cameron that's shinier energy, their Sabine Pass facility, Cameron simper, Cameron LNG and hackberry and then venture global LNG with their Kalka shoe pass facility in Cameron. So that Kalkaji past refers to the maritime designation rather than it being anywhere but in Cameron parish. Yeah, so and then there are additional there are projects that are under development there. Delfin LNG which is proposing a floating liquefaction facility. expansion for Cameron LNG expansion for venture global LNG G to net zero Commonwealth LNG all of those projects are in development currently. All in camera, correct? Yeah. 09:54 Yeah. significant problem. And then from that humble location shed, how much of the LNG I mean, you spouted off some stats when we first started, but the majority of the exports come out of that area. 10:12 That's correct. Yeah, if you if you take a look online for to track, liquefied natural gas export, significant amount is coming, you know 78 million tons a year is coming right from Cameron parish to places around the world, the Asian market, the European market since the conflict in the Ukraine, we've seen another uptick in how much is leaving, neverminded what what's being used domestically coming from those facilities. What puts the United States of America in a position where we are strategically secure in terms of energy production. Camera perish is a major driver in in that happening. It's also home to one of the to one of the nation's two strategic petroleum reserves. Roughly 700,000 barrels of capacity are housed there. The Strategic Petroleum Reserve, Cameron Parrish has 78 miles of the Gulf of Mexico coastline, on the northern Gulf 44 miles of the Gulf intercostal waterway, the GI WW, roughly 33 miles of the Kalka ship channel, which is deep water. I mean, the reason why these projects are focusing on this area is because of immediate access to the Gulf of Mexico, deep water. But perhaps one of the densest natural gas pipeline networks, arguably, in North America, perhaps in the world, when you take a look at natural gas pipelines, from a national perspective, you can't even see the state of Louisiana southern part of Louisiana. It's it's a significant draw for projects that are looking to develop energy related projects. Also, our our community, not only in Cameron parish, but in Southwest Louisiana in the state of Louisiana, has a solid track record for supporting smart energy projects, projects that are considering their impact on the environment and the community as a whole. We've had tremendous opportunity to prove that we can be wise about our choices, that we participate in things like waterbay, waterway suitability assessments that the Coast Guard oversees for these projects. We want to be strategic partners, we want to actively engage. And so that's what you've seen with us 12:48 what and for a definition, what a smart energy projects giving. 12:53 Yeah, so I'm not using it as a in a Webster's Dictionary sort of way. I mean, choices being made about projects that include local vendors, suppliers, subcontractors, local government entities being making a choice to be inclusive, rather than exclusive. Create developing a project under some Vail being out and open, talking with locals from everything from site selection to. And I don't mean it in a smart growth type of way, although I welcome that. Not in a an industry sort of definition, simply doing the right thing is, 13:37 and I think that industry gets a bad rap, I think that it's just natural part of their culture to do the right thing, you're not going to get an industry that's going to go there and say, Alright, we're just gonna dig this whole thing up, and then it's gonna throw some garbage in there. And, and and everybody's gonna be just absolutely happy with that that's not the case. And I think that industry gets a bad rap. And you just sort of point that out. This, given the fact that, let's say, you've got about 90 billion and I keep looking at my notes, so don't don't be distracted, because I'm not as smart as Clair by any stretch of the imagination. So you got to run 90 billion is sort of floating it's going in that direction, Cameron parish, wherever it is on there, it requires a a significant community involvement, because many of these companies Yes, can't come rolling on in with their army of things. They got to they've got to work with the community. Can you sort of expand a little bit upon what that means? 14:32 So it means many things when a project that is a $33 billion project, or 15 billion or 10 billion or 4 billion begins to investigate how they become a part of the community. It starts with things like visiting with local permitting offices, understanding how much of a particular parish for our circumstances in Louisiana No, we don't have counties we have parishes. very rudimentary things that that, from an industrial perspective, like, what is the capacity of the municipal water system? How do I fully understand that? How do I integrate myself as a project into that system? How do I have conversations about where the these are? And I realize these are very what might seem like simplistic things in a very rural community with only two lane highways, how do I navigate 5600 people coming in to build my facility with school buses? On two lane roads with no shoulders? How do I begin to visit with the local sheriff's department to understand what some of their concerns might be this is, you know, as a community starts to have projects like this come in, it's the the spectrum is large. It's not just what is the global market for my product? And how do I get access to work? It's all those things. Certainly, it's so much it's drinking from a firehose, but if a project is going to position itself well, and Ally itself with the community, wherever it is in the world, there must be active, constant, consistent communication with that particular community where that project is actually locating and then expanding from there sometimes into other states, finding out what the issues that that community is facing, for example, in Cameron parish, it is hugely coastal protection and restoration. The projects that I mentioned, have all understood that for their longevity and project success, they must face the question and answer it honestly, about how they're protecting their site, their investment, their, you know, 33 billion, whatever it might be, how that you know, what risks, every you know, this every project is in constant risk assessment and risk management? Well, each community that a project goes into, there's a whole new set of risks, and becoming an integrated part of a community, in my estimation, is the single most effective way for a project to reduce their risks. That's the name of the game for me, 17:36 the fact that Cameron Parrish there was, there had to be that one company that was a trailblazer, they said, Ah, this area is great. It's it has good coastal access, it's got all of the little components. And now I got to go down that road and work with the community because I think that I want to invest down there. That was the real Trailblazer, subsequent projects, and the knowledge of the communities has been elevated, because now they know like, yeah, you just got a $33 billion, one down here, we understand your water challenges. We understand this and and and so it just becomes a little bit more efficient from from an from an investment and risk perspective, right? 18:19 Absolutely. So when so that trailblazer for us in camera Parrish was shinier energy with their Sabine Pass facility. And they are

They got to they've got to work with the community. Can you sort of expand a little bit upon what that means?

14:32

e highways, how do I navigate:

17:36

the fact that Cameron Parrish there was, there had to be that one company that was a trailblazer, they said, Ah, this area is great. It's it has good coastal access, it's got all of the little components. And now I got to go down that road and work with the community because I think that I want to invest down there. That was the real Trailblazer, subsequent projects, and the knowledge of the communities has been elevated, because now they know like, yeah, you just got a $33 billion, one down here, we understand your water challenges. We understand this and and and so it just becomes a little bit more efficient from from an from an investment and risk perspective, right?

18:19

t facility. Back in the early:

20:31

so

20:33

large, it's almost can't be measured. But it goes into these kids that are in kindergarten now may be working on these facilities experience that may get them an opportunity to travel the world and work on other liquefied natural gas export facilities. But it doesn't stop it's opportunities for mom and pops who maybe thought they would never engage in that high level of industry, gas stations. It's just when when one stops to think about all of the opportunities, you know, I for when I start to wonder, are we really taking full advantage of all of those?

21:16

That's so interesting. Wow. Because I, I remember the opportunity, I had to go down there to look at one of those LNG terminals, they are you can't keep your eyes off of that they're massive. And I think the story that has to be told it is the reality that shinier, and the positive impact from K all the way up into whatever is having and let me ask you this one question. A granted, I've been down there. And these terminals just don't build themselves. So there is a lot of stress and strain on the infrastructure. How does how does it project deal with that? And how does a community deal with that? I mean,

22:03

five weeks after Katrina, in:

25:50

agreements have been negotiated? That's one thing. Let's just take that example, Scott. Power Generation. Yeah, so these projects are created to provide liquefied natural gas to various countries around the world. And they require power, it may seem like a very simple concept, but they require power construction power, they require power for their administrative facilities, and Nevermind the load that they require to generate the liquefied natural gas that's going to travel the world and provide the energy to other people. So it's this constant? Are we in balance? Are we imbalanced from the local community and what we can provide or not provide? Yeah, so it's, it's so many components, it's workforce development, it's identifying people within a community who may have some traditional oil and gas industry experience that could be their their experience, their knowledge and skills and abilities could be amplified or tweaked to work right there. Instead of finding people from around the world, how about we find people identify people who are qualified or almost qualified talent? And if they're not qualified, what do we do to create an opportunity for them to become qualified? Yeah. And that applies to individuals that applies to local vendors, suppliers and subcontractors. It's um, it's a very all encompassing, it can be if projects are willing to integrate into the community and allow the community to do what it can to solve some of those problems.

27:38

I think you bring up a really good point, it's not just the impact to Cameron Parish, and how you, you know, develop a project in that area, you can pull back and say, here's a model, this model can be applied to other areas around the country who are thinking about investing in and being able to this is a successful model. And I agree with you 100%. I think that there's no way you're going to be able to invest 33 billion or 10 billion or 5 billion or 8 billion, whatever it might be, without getting that community, the local community involved. And yes, where? Where's the roadblocks? What, what, what are the challenges because I'm all in I feel like, I'm just like, Yeah, I'm gonna carry the flag. I'm ready to roll. You've done a great job at that. But there's got to be roadblocks can't just all be pink elephant and bubblegum.

28:35

h the construction of, say, a:

32:35

See. And I what's interesting. Speaking of fishing, I remember going and chartering a boat out of hackberry. What do you brought up? Oh, yeah, absolutely chartered a boat. Yeah, absolutely.

32:47

And what was that experience? Like?

32:49

Excellent, was excellent. Like, come on, you got you got to do that. It right

32:55

there in the midst of that development is the point I'm getting at is those things can work simultaneously, for the benefit of all parties involved. And I just refuse to believe that can't

33:13
