Proposed Gulf Coast GTL project, subject to final approval by Shell, would result in 740 new direct jobs; Louisiana Hwy. 70 proposed expansion to accommodate potential project.
The company plans to produce three-wheeled vehicles capable of attaining a highway mileage rating of more than 80 mpg at the former GM plant in Caddo Parish.
Hiring for the GTL and ethane cracker facilities will begin in 2014. Operations of the first plant are expected to start in 2017, with full employment reached within two years after commercial operations begin. Dec 4, 2012 @ 12:28 PM
