In Focus: CP Chem and Qatar Petroleum plan new world-scale ethane cracker in USA

Report summary

Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC (CP Chem) and Qatar Petroleum (QP) announced plans on 9 July 2019 to jointly develop a US Gulf Coast petrochemical project. The project, named US Gulf Coast II Petrochemical Project (USGC II), will include a 2,000 ktpa ethylene cracker and two 1,000 KTA high-density polyethylene units. The targeted start-up date is 2024. The cracker will utilize ethane and will be located in the USGC to access the region’s growing ethane supply. The announcement comes on the heels of a previous announcement by the duo on 24 June 2019 to build a similarly-sized ethylene and HDPE complex in Qatar.
