A Singapore-based company plans to build a major natural gas facility in neighboring Sonora.

LNG Alliance intends to invest $2.1 billion in a gas liquefaction facility in Sonoran port city Guaymas, state government officials say.

The liquefied natural gas would then be shipped to Japan, Indonesia and other Asian countries, as well as other parts of Mexico itself. Sonoran Governor Alfonso Durazo said that Sonora played a key role in enabling the project.

The project will be built on roughly 250 acres of state-owned land administered by the port authority, according to Durazo. In return, he said the state will receive “a small part of the benefits” generated by the company. The facility’s construction is expected to create some 3,000 jobs, and nearly 300 once operations begin.
