BROUSSARD, La. - Mayor Charles Langlinais released the following statement about Plain Exploration and Production locating a new deepwater Gulf of Mexico warehouse and storage facility in Broussard:
"We have been working with the Plain Exploration and Production team for some time now. This facility will represent between 300-400 new, good paying jobs for the citizens and the City of Broussard. We are going to begin working on short-term, mid-term and long-term infrastructure needs on Bernard Road to support this project and future projects we hope will soon follow. Jim Flores's decision to locate this facility here in Broussard is a major addition to the oil and gas technology corridor we are building in this city and we look forward to working with Plains Exploration & Production for many years to come."
