A Partner for Jobs and the Economy
The Jordan Cove Project places a priority on local hiring and locally sourced products and services for the construction and ongoing operation of the LNG export terminal and pipeline. We are committed to recruiting local area residents as full-time employees during operation, and working closely with our contractors to hire locally for construction workers.
"Our community needs places of employment that provide living wages and offer training and education for our employee population. I have seen friends and family leave this area in search of better opportunities. While this Project isn’t the magic bullet, it’s a big step in the right direction."
During construction, the Jordan Cove Project will create more than 6,000 good-paying construction jobs. This will include approximately 1,000 jobs per year during the construction of the LNG Terminal, and approximately 1,400 jobs per year for the construction of the pipeline.
Once construction is complete, the Project will continue to require more than 200 people to operate the LNG Terminal, pipeline and offices in Coos Bay, Medford and Portland.
The Jordan Cove Project will revitalize the local economy throughout Southern Oregon and the South Coast.
During construction the Project would create over ~8,500 spin off jobs in sectors like hospitality, retail, tourism, and healthcare, including ~1,500 permanent spin-off jobs during operations.
Jordan Cove LNG’s Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor, KBJ, has executed a Project Labor Agreement with the Oregon Building and Construction Trades Council, the Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters and the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 701 for construction of the LNG Terminal. This agreement ensures the Project will be built with local, skilled union labor with a long track record of safely completing complex industrial projects on time. PCGP is committed to using union labor for construction of the pipeline and is in discussions with trade unions regarding the timing of construction, available resources and required skill sets.
