This will also contribute towards the growing demand for polymers globally. It builds on their successful and long-term partnership with Chevron Phillips Chemical, and they also look forward to doing more collaborations in the future.

Once it Starts Functioning, the Plant Will be Making Marlex® Polyethylene


Polyethylene is mainly employed to make durable goods such as pipes for water, natural gas, and water delivery, as well as recreational products like coolers and kayaks. It also finds application in essential packaging for protecting and preserving foods, preventing them from ending up in landfills, and keeping medical supplies sterile.

The plant's operations will begin in 2026, including two 1,000 KTA high-density polyethylene units and a 2,080 KTA ethane cracker. The project targets on having lower greenhouse gas emissions by around 25 percent compared to other such facilities in Europe and the United States, helping the efforts of the company in enabling a low-carbon future. Chevron Phillips Chemical will handle procurement, engineering, and construction for the project and also manage the facility after it starts.

The Golden Triangle Polymers plant's construction will start instantly alongside the existing Chevron Phillips Chemical facility in Orange, situated 113 miles east of Houston. The predecessors of Chevron Phillips Chemical, along with the company, have had a presence in the Orange community since 1955.

The construction, engineering, and procurement of the polyethylene units will be accomplished via a joint venture between Zachry Industrial Inc. (Zachry Group) and DL USA, Inc., ZDJV. The furnace part in the engineering and procurement of ethane crackers will be carried out by T. EN Stone & Weber Process Technology, Inc. In contrast, PCL Industrial Construction Co. will be delivering construction services.
