Chevron Phillips Chemical marks progress toward US ethylene plant

By OGJ editors

Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. LP has reached an agreement with the Shaw Group Inc., Baton Rouge, La., for front-end engineering and design for a 1.5 million tonnes/year (3.3 billion lb/year) grassroots ethylene plant at Chevron Phillips Chemical’s Cedar Bayou plant in Baytown, Tex.

The scope of work, which will be released in phases, follows a contract announced in December 2011 for Shaw’s license of its proprietary technology and a process design package for the project.

The new plant will be designed to use ethane supplies from increased shale gas production, said the announcement.
