HGA to Provide IPMT Services for Strategic Biofuels’ Louisiana Green Fuels Project

CALDWELL PARISH, LA — HGA has been selected by Strategic Biofuels as technical partner to provide Integrated Project Management Team (IPMT) services for the $2.5 to $3 billion Louisiana Green Fuels (LGF) project at the Port of Columbia in Caldwell Parish, Louisiana. Strategic Biofuels develops ultra-negative carbon footprint sustainable aviation fuel specifically created to reduce CO2 emissions for the aviation industry.

Under this professional services agreement, the HGA IPMT team will help to lead the project through front-end engineering to Final Investment Decision (FID). Assuming the project passes through the FID gate, HGA will support the project in the role of owner’s engineer, providing a wide range of professional services to take the project through full engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, and start-up.

“This project represents a major step towards HGA’s commitment to delivering low-emissions projects to customers,” said Frank Gay, Vice President of HGA’s owner’s representative business unit. “Our team has a long history of successful mega project execution, and we are grateful to be given the opportunity to support SBF’s objective to be a leader in sustainable aviation fuel production.”

Responding to the need to lower the carbon emissions of commercial aviation, earlier this year Strategic Biofuels unveiled plans to change its primary renewable fuel product to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). SAF is a renewably produced fuel specifically created to lower the greenhouse gas emissions of commercial aviation.

The plant will utilize:

  • Approximately 1 million tons per year of forestry waste as the feedstock for the biorefinery to produce SAF
  • Green energy from an integrated biomass-fired power plant that will take nearly 1 million tons of sawmill waste annually to produce 86 megawatts of power
  • Geologic carbon sequestration of 1.36 million metric tons per year of CO2 produced from both of those operations to create this fuel

With the project site located in Caldwell Parish, just 60 miles from the HGA corporate office, the project provides an opportunity for both HGA and Strategic Biofuels to make a positive impact on the community with local transformation. During peak construction times, an estimated 1,500 jobs will need to be filled to further the plant to operation. Once complete, the LGF plant will support 150-plus jobs on site and provide a major economic boost for the region.
