A $1.4 billion expansion to an ethylene plant in Louisiana would create 2,100 construction jobs.
Shintech, a subsidiary of Japan-based Shin-Etsu Chemical, is planning the expansion to the plant and is projected to raise the company's total investment at the facility to $4.7 billion.
This is the third expansion since 2008. Construction is expected to start in the second quarter of this year and be finished in 2018.
