$15,000 less/more on the balance of payments

without an LNG port or station or whatever, their balance of payments will be DOWN by that much or will be that much less....

with it, it will be that much more

you can't just say balance of payment and the amount..it makes no sense in English! the LNG port will bring that amount in
