G2X Energy Breaks Ground on Pampa Fuels Plant

Pampa EDC

Houston-based G2X Energy on Friday January 18, 2013 broke ground on the largest vacant facility site, formerly the Celanese Chemical Plant , in Pampa, Tx. The property will now serve as G2Xs Pampa Fuels plant where natural gas will be converted into methanol and gasoline.

"What we are all about at G2X is high-end manufacturing jobs here in the U.S.," said Pampa Fuels CEO Timothy Vail. "We feel were going to be able to revitalize this site. Were also going to bring substantial value back to the Pampa area."

Texas Sen. Kel Seliger also commented on the groundbreaking. "Today weve come together to recognize a Texas-based company working to create local jobs and revitalize a site that has been vacant for four years ---- achievements we can all celebrate." he said. "We're proud to welcome G2X Energy into our community and anticipate much success on the horizon, both here in Texas and across the country." The new facility will bring an estimated $155 million into the local economy, including Pampa and Amarillo, according to a news release.

G2X expects to create more than 200 part-time and full-time jobs.

G2X expects to produce 65,000 tons of methanol each year which, in turn, will be marketed by Southern Chemical for sale to Panhandle customers, according to G2X's website.

"What sets G2X Energy apart is our ability to build upon proven conversion technologies and infrastructure that have come before to bring high-value methanol and gasoline to market," Vail said. "We thank Sen. Seliger for his support in our march toward the economically efficient, domestic production of methanol and gasoline from natural gas. "
