A new facility could be on the way to Geismar, bringing more than 100 jobs.

Methanex Corporation says they're looking at moving a methanol plant from Chile to Geismar. The $400 million investment would bring about 125 full-time jobs and 1,000 construction jobs to the area, if the move happens.

"It says a lot. We're going to continue growing here. Our economy is going to be strong," says Ascension Parish President Tommy Martinez.

The plant could be up an running by 2014.
