With the construction of the world’s largest liquefied natural gas export terminal opening in South Dakota this year, some of the jobs expected to come will be at the company’s logistics and freight operations.
BNSFs operations are centered in Hollingsworth, South Dakota, and are currently managed by a subsidiary of the company, LogisticsBnsf.
The company, which has a history of moving materials, supplies and other goods from one part of the United States to another, will also hire some of its own workers to move material from one location to another.
Bnsf has said that the new construction will boost its gross margins in the U.S. by as much as 30%.
BnsF’s operations in Hollingworth are a major hub for its natural gas exports to the U, Canada, Mexico and Europe.
According to a report by CNN Money, the Hollingsford operations have experienced the highest number of job openings of any BNS facility in the world.
The Hollingsbury facility, which will be able to accommodate 10 million tons of liquid natural gas a year, will be a major contributor to BNSs global expansion plans.
“As we build the largest natural gas pipeline in the United Kingdom, we are looking forward to adding more manufacturing and distribution jobs and providing an additional $500 million in new revenue for our shareholders in the years ahead,” Bnsa CEO Joe Naugle said in a statement.
Gaenz, a major Bausdorf and Heinz conglomerate, announced that it would expand its operations in South Africa, where it operates a liquefy plant, and hire 1,000 workers.
Bauhaus, the German automaker, said that it will expand its plant in Derry, Northern Ireland, which was previously operated by its parent company, the Irish company, BAE Systems.
BAF and BAE are in talks to purchase a majority stake in Bauskraft, a company that provides logistics services to Baukus’ oil and gas business.
