$8.5B Chevron Plastics Plant to go up in Orange, TX

Orange, Texas To Go Green With New $8.5B Plastics Plant

Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC and QatarEnergy are proceeding with the construction of an $8.5 billion integrated polymers (plastics) facility in Orange, Texas. It’s expected to create more than 500 full-time jobs and approximately 4,500 construction jobs and generate an estimated $50 billion for the community in residual economic impacts.

Chevron’s Bruce Chinn added, “Our products help make life better for billions of people every day, and they are part of a lower carbon future. This facility will help meet the growing demand for our products and improve the quality of life for the world’s growing global population.”

Once operational, the plant will produce Marlex® polyethylene. Polyethylene is used in the production of durable goods like pipe for natural gas and water delivery and recreational products such as kayaks and coolers. It is also used in essential packaging applications to protect and preserve food.

The Chevron Phillips Chemical plant is expected to begin operations in 2026.
