We’re thankful for positive energy!


Reflecting on what matters most

As Thanksgiving kicks off the 2020 holiday season here in the U.S., our New Fortress Energy liquefied natural gas (LNG) team are pausing to consider the many reasons we have to give thanks: from family and friends, to health and hope… to our contributions to a company making a positive difference in the world and in our LNG community, and our ability to simply give thanks every day. We are glad to be able to share our reflections here, and we wish you an abundance of positive energy this Thanksgiving!
