Jobs & Training
Direct employment includes construction jobs as well employees that will be required to operate the terminal on a day-to-day basis. During construction, Jordan Cove LNG will employ an average of 930 people over a four-year period. Once construction is complete, Jordan Cove LNG will employ more than 175 people.
Indirect employment includes jobs created to support Jordan Cove LNG, its employees and families such as tugboat crews, emergency planners, and security staff.
Induced jobs are the result of direct and indirect employment that generates business for other parts of the community. For example, increased traffic at a restaurant creates the need for more service staff. Jordan Cove LNG could create hundreds of induced jobs for Coos Bay.
Partnership with Labor
Jordan Cove LNG’s construction contractor 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. 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.
