New energy plant in Hobbs, NM – “Attorney General Gary King today helps kick-off inaugural ceremonies for the new uranium enrichment facility in southeast New Mexico which has already brought hundreds of new jobs to Lea County.
‘As a longtime supporter of the Louisiana Energy Services facility near Eunice, it is very gratifying to see the project paying off for New Mexico,’ says AG King. ‘Besides providing much needed new jobs, the plant is helping to diversify the area’s energy technologies for future national energy production.’
500 to 700 facility construction jobs are expected to continue through 2015, adding to nearly 300 permanent jobs already created in Lea County by L.E.S.
The Eunice facility is the first centrifuge uranium enrichment plant located in the United States. It is anticipated that at full capacity the facility can produce sufficient enriched uranium for nuclear fuel to provide approximately 10% of America’s electricity needs.” – Office of NM Attorney General, Gary King
