ExxonMobil is celebrating the launch of its Polypropylene Growth Project (PPG Project). According to Governor John Bel Edwards, the project represents a $500 million investment and the creation of 65 direct and 219 indirect jobs in Louisiana. The project, which broke ground in 2019, will increase ExxonMobil's polypropylene production by 450,000 metric tons per year.

In a recent quote, Gov. Edwards said, “For more than a century, ExxonMobil has been a leader in innovative technology, community investment and workforce development in Louisiana. The PPG Project is just the latest example of how ExxonMobil’s investments in our state create career opportunities for our citizens, provide new business for local companies and support community efforts. I’m proud that Louisiana’s strong business climate and competitive incentives programs were able to secure this investment for our state.”
