MIDLAND, US: The Dow Chemical Company will construct a new world-scale ethylene production plant in Freeport, Texas, as part of Dow’s previously announced comprehensive plan to further connect its US operations with cost-advantaged feedstocks available from increasing supplies of US shale gas. The new ethylene production facility at Dow Texas Operations will employ up to 2,000 workers at its construction peak. The new ethylene production unit project will start-up in 2017.

“For the first time in over a decade, US natural gas prices are affordable and relatively stable, attracting new industry investments and growth and putting us on the threshold of an American manufacturing resurgence. Constructing this new ethylene cracker at Dow Texas Operations will create a long-term advantage for our downstream businesses and for our Company as a whole, and the benefits will accrue not only to Dow but to the state and national economy,” said Andrew N Liveris, Chairman and CEO, Dow.
