Chevron Phillips to expand NAO capacity at Cedar Bayou facility, US

THE WOODLANDS, US: Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP is studying the possibility of expanding its normal alpha olefins (NAO) capacity at its Cedar Bayou Chemical Complex in Baytown, Texas. The company is targeting at least a 20 per cent increase in a phased approach.

The company has filed the necessary environmental permit application with Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Construction would be targeted to commence in the first quarter of 2014, and the project would be completed in the fourth quarter of 2015. Final approval would be sought in the third quarter of 2013.

“This study echoes Chevron Phillips Chemical’s strong commitment to the NAO business and to meeting the growing demand of our customers. In addition, this proposed expansion has great synergy with the 1-hexene plant currently being built at our Cedar Bayou complex,” said Mitch Eichelberger, General Manager, Normal Alpha Olefins and Polyalphaolefins, Chevron Phillips Chemical.
