A community partner you can count on

  • $10 million contribution

    GCGV contributed over $10 million to the Coastal Bend region in community enrichment projects throughout project development and construction.

    To support local environmental preservation, conservation and rehabilitation programs, ExxonMobil, GCGV's partner and operator, made a $2 million investment in the Texas State Aquarium's Wildlife Rescue Center.

  • $81,000 contributed

    GCGV contributed $81,000 in 2022 to environmental organizations to enhance science education and research throughout the area, including significant donations to University of Texas Marine Science Institute and Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies.

  • $5 million donated

    Through joint efforts, Chiyoda Kiewit Joint Venture, GCGV's largest contractor, donated $5 million to help fund a new City of Gregory Municipal Complex that houses administrative offices and the fire station.

  • $2 million invested

    In collaboration with the community, GCGV has invested over $2 million since 2020 in two air monitoring stations in Portland. Review of the data generated from continuous air sampling shows no change in air quality since startup of the air monitors in 2019.

    for the community.

    GCGV contributed

    $2 million

    to the City of Portland for the renovation of Indian Point Park and construction of the new Indian Point Pavilion. The pavilion serves as a community gathering space and a celebration of the Texas coastal environment that residents enjoy.

    GCGV celebrated a successful startup

    The facility started operations in late 2021 and that included a well-deserved thank you to vendors, contractors and employees who completed construction and commissioning during one of the most trying periods in history. Despite the pressures of the global pandemic, our contractors and employees completed construction early and under budget.

    Several celebratory events were held to show our appreciation to the community and our many partners. We held a Startup Celebration in March, an employee celebration in May and a family day for our employees to show off the new facility. ​
