San Patricio County has been selected for the ExxonMobil petrochemical plant site.
Gulf Coast Growth Ventures made the announcement in a release this morning.
The president of ExxonMobil Chemical Company, Neil Chapman, will speak on the announcement further at an event in Portland today.
The companies announced the project in July with four sites in mind - two in Louisiana and one other in Texas near Victoria - before increasingly homing in on San Patricio County late last year.
Many residents have voiced concern about the plant being built in San Patricio county because of the close proximity to Gregory-Portland High School.
