THE WOODLANDS, US: Chevron Phillips Chemical Company plans two polyethylene facilities as part of the company’s US Gulf Coast (USGC) Petrochemicals project, located on a site nearby the Chevron Phillips Chemical Sweeny facility in Old Ocean, Texas. The new facility will have an annual capacity of 500,000 metric tonne and would utilize Chevron Phillips Chemical’s proprietary Loop Slurry Technology. The USGC project is expected to create approximately 400 long-term direct jobs and 10,000 engineering and construction jobs. The estimated completion date for the USGC project is 2017.

The company has executed a front-end engineering and design (FEED) agreement with Jacobs Engineering Group to design the polyethylene facilities. “These polyethylene facilities would be the first ethylene derivative units to be constructed in Old Ocean and as such, they offer an exciting opportunity to our employees, the surrounding Brazoria County community, and those businesses that would service these new facilities,” said Peter L Cella, President and CEO, Chevron Phillips.

“In addition, constructing polyethylene infrastructure at Old Ocean better positions the location for potential future investments. We would like to acknowledge the dedicated efforts of the Brazoria County community leaders whose support for our project was instrumental in the decision to choose Old Ocean,” added Cella.
