Old Ocean, Tex., picked for PE plants

Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. LP has selected a site at Old Ocean, Tex., near its Sweeny petrochemical complex for two new polyethylene plants with capacities of 1.1 billion lb/year each.

It earlier had said the plants, part of a major Gulf Coast expansion, would be located at Ocean City or Baytown, Tex. (OGJ Online, Apr. 2, 2012).

The company let a contract to Jacobs Engineering Group to design the polyethylene plants. It earlier let a contract to Shaw Group Inc. for front-end engineering and design of a 3.3 billion lb/year ethylene plant at its Cedar Bayou complex in Baytown (OGJ Online, May 1, 2012).

Chevron Phillips also is building what will be the world’s largest 1-hexene plant at Cedar Bayou and expanding its fractionator at Sweeny (OGJ Online, Apr. 2, 2012).
