Edwardsville IL Homes for Sale and Real Estate

Call Us About ConocoPhillips Wood River Refinery Relocation Homes

The massive ConocoPhillips EnCana Wood River refinery in Roxana, Illinois is expanding, bringing great new jobs to our area for skilled craftsmen and contractors. That's excellent news for Madison County, Illinois in the midst of the ongoing national recession.

According to the companies, the $2 billion project is expected to be completed for production to begin in the early months of 2011.  The expansion will upgrade capacity and will increase the production of clean fuels for the Midwest.

The refinery, located on approximately 2,200 acres at the intersection of IL Highway 111 and Madison, is operated by ConocoPhillips in cooperation with EnCana Corp., a Canadian oil producer.

If you're relocating to the area for jobs associated with the Wood River oil refinery expansion in the Roxana area, there are great home deals waiting for you across the communities of Madison County.
