Pharmaceutical company plans expansion in St. Charles

Thursday, 03 October 2013 16:14 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A pharmaceutical research company plans a nearly $31 million capital investment that could create 320 jobs in St. Charles at its first U.S. facility.

Missouri officials announced the project Thursday. The state is offering about $4 million of incentives through the Missouri Quality Jobs Program.

Pharma Medica Research Inc. is a Toronto-based company that does research and development and trials for pharmaceutical companies. Its services include scientific affairs, medical writing, clinical trials, bioanalysis and data management. The company is plans to use a building in St. Charles that previously housed a clinical research organization.

Gov. Jay Nixon met with officials from Pharma Medica Research this year during a convention in Chicago.

 

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Companies that want to perform high-volume oil and gas drilling in Illinois may begin registering with the state.

But it will be several months before companies may apply for a permit to use the drilling process known as hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking."

Gov. Pat Quinn signed a law regulating fracking in July. It created a two-step permit application process that requires companies to first register with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

IDNR won't accept applications for drilling permits until a legislative committee approves rules. Spokesman Chris McCloud says that process - which will include public hearings - will take months.

Fracking uses high-pressure mixtures of water, chemicals and sand to crack rock formations deep underground to release oil and gas.

Opponents fear it will pollute and deplete water resources.
