Plainview Oil Opens Hialeah Refinery and Terminal

Sign in to follow this  


Plainview Oil has decided to increase their refining and shipping capacity and has built a new facility in Hialeah.


Southern Natchez Authority has also upgraded the aging Hialeah Generating Station to burn both coal and oil.

The oil is mainly piped to the new dock in the Northeast end of town.


City officials are now looking at ways to mitigate the environmental impact of the refinery and increased power production at the power station. Currently surveys indicate roughlt 60% of residents are unhappy with pollution. Plans include rezoning the industrial area in the southwest and a tree-planting initiative. The city is also planning to add more parks.

Higher density residential development is seen south of the docks. Increased residential demand from a growing commercial sector including the Plainview oil offices has grown the population to 23,000. More on that to follow

Hello there! Wow, that is a massive facility. :) How much does it employ? For zoning, I would recommend hitting CTRL + however many tiles you wish to zone. This allows you to plan much better on how big the layout will be for each building.

The refinery currently employs 201/230 people and the power plant 62/71. Thanks for the tip that should make things a lot easier
