Chevron Phillips receives key permits for large Gulf Coast project

Mary Page Bailey

Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP (The Woodlands, Tex; www.cpchem.com) announced it received air permits from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for its planned ethane cracker and polyethylene units.  Additionally, Chevron Phillips Chemical received a greenhouse gas permit from Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the cracker earlier this year. Pending final board approval to be sought later this year, the 1.5 million metric tons/year (m.t./yr) ethane cracker would be built at Chevron Phillips Chemical’s Cedar Bayou facility in Baytown, Texas, while the two new polyethylene facilities, each with a capacity of 500,000 m.t./yr, would be built on a site near the Chevron Phillips Chemical Sweeny facility in Old Ocean, Texas. The ethane cracker and two polyethylene units, part of the company’s US Gulf Coast (USGC) Petrochemicals Project, are expected to create approximately 400 long-term direct jobs and 10,000 engineering and construction jobs. The estimated completion date for the USGC Petrochemicals Project is 2017.
