WEST COAST OLEFINS TAKING FIRST STEPS TOWARDS THE CONSTRUCTION OF A $5.6 BILLION PETROCHEMICAL FACILITY IN PRINCE GEORGE
West Coast Olefins of Calgary has secured a 300-acre site in the BCR Industrial Area within the City of Prince George in preparation for the construction of a $5.6 billion petrochemical project at the site. The project would include a world-scale ethylene plant and polyethylene facility and the majority of the polyethylene product would be shipped to growing Asian markets. Once fully operational, the facility will create up to 1,000 permanent highly skilled jobs, while several thousand workers will be required to support the construction effort over a three-year period. Tens of millions of dollars in sustaining capital investment will be required each year to support the facility, which would provide on-going economic benefits for the community.
