Exxon scouting for Louisiana suppliers for its refinery work

ExxonMobil is hosting a virtual event to scout for a wider network of local suppliers for its planned $410 million refinery project in Louisiana’s capital city.

The Advocate reports that the Baton Rouge Supplier Forum is scheduled for Wednesday.

ExxonMobil said it expects to spend $226 million in Baton Rouge and set aside at least $3.5 million for diverse suppliers and $1 million for Baton Rouge-based companies.

“From local catering and marketing supplies to landscaping and pest control services, the multitude of needed services and products for the project vary immensely,” the company said.
