Law Firm – Personal Injury & Accident Attorney
Sulphur, Louisiana, is located in the southwestern region of the state, in Calcasieu Parish. As a small city that is frequently overshadowed by neighboring Lake Charles, Sulphur has exhibited steady economic growth since it became a village in 1914. True to its name, the city’s industrial backbone is rooted in the sulfur industry.
Although it is now largely defunct, in the early 1900s the sulfur industry boomed in the area, due to both the discovery of large quantities of the mineral in the region, and new innovations by local inhabitants as means of extracting the raw material. By the mid 1920s, sulfur was no longer mined in the area, which had turned its focus to oil and the petrochemical industry in general. The early mining of this mineral, however, laid the economic foundation for the city of Sulphur that allowed it to succeed in later years. Railroad traffic was encouraged as a means of transporting the sulfur to other markets; similarly, waterways were constructed to provide further ease of export. These transportation systems became entrenched in Sulphur, and when the city turned its sights to other means of capital, the presence of such a reliable infrastructure helped to ease the economic transition.
Oil, as with many other areas of Louisiana, is the most significant industry in Sulphur. This is largely due to the proximity of large refineries, including the Citgo Refinery. Refineries, and other aspects of the petroleum industry, provide a majority of the employment opportunities to Sulphur residents. Apart from oil, Sulphur’s economic focus is largely on the growth of small businesses, and the attraction of outside capital through the tourism industry. Sulphur’s industrial dependence, however, is decidedly tied to the business of oil and chemical refineries.
