Dow Chemical to build a world-scale ethylene plant on the US Gulf coast

April 22/2011

(ICIS) -- Dow Chemical plans to build a world-scale ethylene plant on the US Gulf coast for start-up in 2017, the US-based chemicals major said on Thursday. The plant will be part of a plan to integrate Dows petrochemicals business with feedstock opportunities from the US shale gas in the Marcellus and Eagle Ford shale regions, Dow Chemical said. Dow said it is finalising plans for the ethylene plant for start-up in 2017. Dow is also planning a world-scale on-purpose propylene plant in Texas, for start-up in 2015, it said.


In addition to plans for new ethylene and propylene plants, Dow is preparing to restart its ethylene plant at St Charles, near Hahnville, Louisiana, by the end of 2012.


Dow also plans to improve ethane feedstock flexibility for an ethylene cracker at Plaquemine, Louisiana in 2014, and to increase ethane feedstock for an ethylene cracker in Texas in 2016.
