Worldwide Energy Consortium, Inc. (WEC) announced that it will begin the initial Engineering/Permitting phase for its new refinery located near Gardendale in La Salle County Texas. The site was chosen to take advantage of the oil production from the Eagle Ford Shale play, considered to be one of the largest Oil and Gas fields in the world.
This is the first of several planned operations by WEC in the region. Working closely with local officials, producers, land owners, and state agencies, WEC has identified multiple production sites that will allow it to take advantage of the abundant resources being developed in the area.
This first project, The Whitetail Refinery, will begin immediately. The facility is expected to be operational by the last quarter of 2014.
“The rapid deployment of modern, cost efficient refining operations directly into the new production regions will positively impact the producers, consumers, and the investors in our projects.” – Dave Martinelli, CEO Worldwide Energy Consortium, Inc.
