$10 Billion Plastics Manufacturing Plant Planned in TX

ExxonMobil and SABIC are planning to build a $10 billion plastics manufacturing facility in San Patricio County, TX. The project, Gulf Coast Growth Ventures, is the end result of the abundance of low cost U.S. natural gas.

Gulf Coast Growth Ventures will be the world’s largest ethane steam cracker plant capable of producing 1.8 million tons of ethylene per year, which would feed a monoethylene glycol unit and two polyethylene units. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2019 and should be completed by 2021.
