During construction, our primary construction contractors will be the source of the majority of construction jobs, supply purchases and subcontracts. While we cannot make specific commitments, our agreements with them emphasize using local resources. They will strive to hire locally and promote opportunities for local suppliers and contractors.
During the construction phase, up to 6,000 workers will be needed, including skilled craft workers such as boilermakers, bricklayers, carpenters, millwrights, pipefitters, ironworkers, painters, sheet metal workers and electricians (among others) as well as non-skilled labor.
Once operational, the facility will employ approximately 600 workers in jobs ranging from craft and maintenance work to process technology and operations as well as other technical, administrative and management jobs.
Job creation could also take place in associated industries and services, such as transport and logistics.
In addition, our petrochemical complex will provide an outlet for ethane from regional producers as well as a new, conveniently located supply source for the region’s many manufacturers who use polyethylene as a raw material.
