Kinder Morgan is proposing to design, build and operate a state-of-the-art coal export terminal at the Port of St. Helens, Port Westward Industrial Park. The proposed terminal is estimated to require $150 to $200 million in capital investment for construction and development. The terminal design will incorporate "Best Control Technology" that will minimize or eliminate environmental impact to air, land and water. The terminal will employ an estimated 80 full time jobs to manage and operate the facility with an estimated annual payroll of $13.6 million per year with an average salary of over $90,000 per year, plus benefits. Property taxes will provide an estimated $3.7 million benefit to state and local communities, and the project will create 150+ construction jobs over an 18 to 30 month period.
