This second Sustainability Report details our progress on our goals over the past year and new goals we are setting to respond to current energy needs. Despite challenges from the pandemic that persisted in 2021, our business defied the trends and grew significantly. We extended operations into Mexico and Brazil, further expanding the list of places we are helping to transition from dirtier fuels to low-carbon natural gas. We added to our marine portfolio, acquiring floating storage regasification units (FSRUs), floating storage units (FSUs), and LNG carriers, all of which will be instrumental in the development of future LNG terminals as well as the transportation of LNG across our system.
In 2021, we also gained access to modular liquefaction equipment and offshore platforms, which will allow us to deploy our proprietary FLNG solution – a portable, offshore liquefaction facility – in a fraction of the time of onshore liquefaction infrastructure. We view this technology as a game-changer for our business – not only will it help us to provide even more low-carbon LNG to customers at a time when the world is very short affordable energy, but it can also allow access to stranded gas or gas that is normally flared, which is a big win for the environment.
