Dow lets contract for US Gulf Coast petrochemical projects

Dow Chemical Co. has let a contract to CB&I, Houston, for work related to planned ethylene and propylene expansion projects along the US Gulf Coast.

Under the contract, CB&I will provide pipe fabrication for Dow Chemical’s construction of a new ethylene and propylene production unit in Texas as well as four new polyethylene plants in Texas and Louisiana, CB&I said.

Neither the contract value nor dates of project start-up or completion were disclosed.

Dow Chemical previously announced a number of ethylene-related projects along the US Gulf Coast designed to take advantage of low-cost feedstocks derived from increasing US shale gas production, including improving ethane feedstock flexibility for an ethylene cracker in Plaquemine, La., in 2015, constructing an ethylene plant in the US Gulf Coast to start up by 2017, and building a propylene plant at Dow’s Texas operations for start-up in 2015 (OGJ Online, July 29, 2013; July 1, 2013; Apr. 30, 2012).
