Chevron Phillips Chemical Successfully Starts New Ethane Cracker in Baytown, Texas

Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP (Chevron Phillips Chemical) announced today that it has successfully introduced feedstock and commenced operations of a new ethane cracker at its Cedar Bayou facility in Baytown, Texas. At peak production, the unit will produce 1.5 million metric tons/3.3 billion lbs. per year. This unit will be one of the largest and most energy efficient crackers in the world.  In September 2017, the company announced the successful commissioning and start-up of two new Marlex® polyethylene units in Old Ocean, Texas, based on the company’s proprietary MarTech® technologies.  Together, these assets form the bulk of the company’s U.S. Gulf Coast Petrochemicals Project (USGCPP), which was first announced in 2011.

Ethylene produced by the new ethane cracker at Cedar Bayou will be used to meet the needs of the company’s derivative units, including the two new polyethylene units at Old Ocean, Texas, which are capable of producing a wide variety of products, ranging from metallocene linear low-density polyethylene to Advanced Dual Loop bimodal polyethylene resins.  These resins are turned into consumer and industrial products such as plastic films for food safety and preservation; and polyethylene pipe for water distribution and natural gas transport.  In addition, the ethylene will feed the company’s AlphaPlus® normal alpha olefins plants which are used extensively for polyethylene comonomers, plasticizers, synthetic motor oils, lubricants, automotive additives, surfactants, paper sizing, and in a wide range of other specialty applications.
