BATON ROUGE, LA — March 1, 2019 — Today’s announcement that ExxonMobil has selected Baton Rouge as the site for its Polyolefins Plant is certainly welcome news for the entire Capital Region. The project will not only create 65 permanent jobs and 600 construction jobs, it will bring between $500 million and $1 billion worth of investment to our parish.
My administration has been working with ExxonMobil in support of this plant expansion from the outset. We are appreciative of the confidence they have placed in the future of Baton Rouge and its ability to attract and win capital investment. We look forward to a continued partnership with ExxonMobil and to breaking ground on this project later this year.
