S&B opens office in Nederland, to hire for Sunoco project

NEDERLAND — The general contractor for the $350 million Sunoco project officially cut the ribbon for its Nederland office on Wednesday.

The general contractor, S&B Engineering & Constructors Limited, now has a human resources office  at 1027 Nederland Ave. and is already beginning work on Sunoco’s Nederland LPG Facility site, Glenda Davalos, Mariner South operations integration manager, said.

“We have started clearing the land, and most of the permits have been acquired,” Davalos said.

Davalos hopes to see the project well under way by January.

As general contractor S&B will be hiring personnel for the construction of an export terminal.

Wayne Turner, Nederland terminal manager for Sunoco, said jobs are already being added at Sunoco with more to come.

Temporary construction jobs will be added as well as permanent company jobs at Sunoco.

Mariner South Pipeline is a pipeline project to transport grade propane and butane from Lone Star’s storage and fractionation complex in Mont Belvieu to Sunoco Logistics’ terminal in Nederland.

In addition to export grade propane and butane, the pipeline will be available for other natural gas liquids and petroleum products depending on shipper interest. The pipeline is anticipated to have an initial capacity to transport approximately 200,000 barrels per day and can be scaled to support higher volumes as needed. The pipeline is expected to be operational by the first quarter of 2015, according to the Sunoco website.

Joe Biard, construction manager for the S&B project, said the company is currently hiring.

“We have about 75 people on site now and the hiring will gradually increase,” Biard said. “There will likely be a big increase in March and April and continue through August and September through completion.”

Peak manpower, he said, will be about 750.
