06:04 EDTLYBLyondellBasell evaluating further expansion at Channelview
LyondellBasell announced that it is evaluating a further expansion project at its petrochemical plant in Channelview, Texas, that would potentially add up to 550M pounds-per-year of ethylene capacity. Preliminary engineering work is already underway to assess expansion feasibility. If the project proceeds, the anticipated time frame for completion would be 2017. The proposed expansion project would be in addition to work already underway to install two large cracking furnaces at the Channelview site that are slated to increase production by 250M pounds-per- year when construction work is expected to be completed early next year. In addition to expansion at Channelview, LyondellBasell is increasing ethylene capacity at two other Texas plants. An 800 million pounds-per-year expansion has just been completed in La Porte. And an additional 800 million pounds of capacity are being added at the company's site in Corpus Christi, which is scheduled for completion in late 2015. When all three are completed, a total of 1.85B pounds of ethylene capacity are expected each year. This figure will increase to 2.4B if the additional expansion project is finalized.
