It is expected that over the next few years, Port Arthur will see an investment of over $30 billion in oil and gas projects, whether that’s new refineries or scheduled maintenance of existing ones. A lot of activity is coming to the area bringing with it a fresh wave of oil and gas job opportunities for skilled engineering and technical candidates.
One of the projects drawing the most attention from the technical staffing industry is the Golden Pass LNG project, which is a joint venture between ExxonMobil and Qatar Petroleum. This project is expected to generate thousands of jobs during its construction phase, but activity from Total Petrochemicals, Sempra LNG and MOTIVA is also driving a boom in the area, making it a hotspot for employment opportunity.
To support this growth and help new energy projects flourish, NES recently opened an office in Port Arthur on Highway 365, where our discipline specific consultants are on the ground ready to help candidates take the next steps in their careers.
