ExxonMobil and Chevron Phillips are both spending $5 billion to build two new petrochemical plants in the Houston area, which will provide 10,000 construction jobs over the course of three years, reports The Houston Chronicle.

The construction projects are part of a large petrochemical construction boom in Texas. In total, 84 projects worth about $45 billion are being built. Programs are being developed to help train the huge labor force that will be needed for the projects.
