PORT ARTHUR - Bechtel Corp., the major contractor for the Cheniere Energy Inc. liquefied natural gas facility expansion project in Sabine Pass, has leased an office downtown to recruit and train workers.

The downtown location was as close to the project site as the company could get without locating in Louisiana.

Bechtel could hire anywhere from 300 to 500 people throughout the project, according to Laura Childress, a member of Port Arthur Downtown Renewal Association.

Becon, a Bechtel subsidiary, will operate the recruitment and training office as Cheniere continues to expand its LNG facility. The company signed a lease with the Digital Workforce Academy Golden Triangle Empowerment Center for a 9,200-sf office on Procter St.

The Port Arthur City Council approved the purchase of the historic Port Arthur Savings and Loan Building at 501 Procter St., which will eventually be home to the Port Arthur Economic Development Corporation once the building has been renovated.
