As PIBF Co-Chairman, I am proud to announce an accrual increase for the Welders, Journeymen, and Helpers. The Journeymen rate increased from $205 to $220, and the Helpers increased from $136 to $146 per credit. Additionally, retired members will enjoy a five percent increase in their monthly amount. After the pension raises were calculated, the fund is still at 110.8 percent!
Constructed in two phases, Gulf Connector will deliver natural gas to feed two liquefied natural gas export terminals in Texas — one located on the northern coast of Corpus Christi Bay in 2019, and another located on the coast of Freeport Bay in the second half of 2018. Both liquefaction facilities are currently under construction. The process involves adding compression and making the natural gas flow bi-directional on a portion of the Transco system between Louisiana and south Texas.
