The construction of the Sabine-Neches Waterway will generate widespread economic benefits for Southeast Texas, the state of Texas, and the United States. Those benefits include $5.9 billion in business activity, $2.8 billion in gross product,
and nearly $700 million in retail sales.
At maturity, the Sabine-Neches Waterway will add nearly 528,000 new permanent jobs, $330 billion in new business activity, $103 billion in gross product, and almost $11 billion in federal taxes.
Additionally, the Deepening Project will increase U.S. competitiveness in global markets primarily through energy exports and strengthen our geopolitical position abroad.
