Shell building new $20 million facilities in Houma

Shell Oil is continuing its investment in the Terrebonne and Lafourche region with the construction of two new facilities in Houma.

The first is a $20 million offshore support warehouse, announced Rick Tallant, Shell vice president of production for Gulf of Mexico deepwater projects, at today’s South Central Industrial Association luncheon.

“A lot of investment is going to come also to this region. We’re going to continue to lean on this region for support, for your partnership, to make sure that we’re continuing to be a safe business that can generate the valued economic development that y’all obviously need in this area,” Tallant said.

Currently under construction, the warehouse facility will be about 92,000 square feet, on 33 acres of land on the east side of Houma at 440 Browning Court. The property is just southeast of Prospect Boulevard off the Intracoastal Waterway.
