Deepwater Warehouse Coming to Broussard

KATC

by Ian Auzenne

An oil production company announced today that it is building a new warehouse and office building in Broussard. Plains Exploration and Production Company and the Lafayette Economic Development Authority announced the news today during LEDA's State of the Economy luncheon. The 120,000-square-foot warehouse will hold the company's offshore equipment, while the 8,000-square-foot office building will house the day-to-day operations of the warehouse yard and serve as a hurricane evacuation response center.

"We are committed to the Lafayette area for the long-term," said PXP Executive Vice President Doss Bourgeois. "We expanded our presence in Lafayette and surrounding communities to manage our day-to-day deepwater Gulf of Mexico operations. This new work has added jobs and facilities to the local area."

According to Broussard Mayor Charles Langlinais, this new facility will bring 300 to 400 jobs to his city. "We have been working with the Plain Exploration and Production team for some time now," Langlinais said. "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."
