Phillips Chem­i­cal cel­e­brated the startup of its world-scale poly­eth­yl­ene (PE) units in Old Ocean, Texas, US. This unit will pro­duce up to 1,000,000 met­ric tons an­nu­ally to meet the grow­ing de­mand for poly­eth­yl­ene from our cus­tomers around the globe.

These units can pro­duce a wide va­ri­ety of high qual­ity poly­eth­yl­ene resins rang­ing from met­al­locene lin­ear low-den­sity poly­eth­yl­ene (LLDPE) to bi-modal resins for film and pipe prod­ucts, dis­play­ing the wide ca­pa­bil­ity of the com­pany’s pro­pri­etary Martech tech­nol­ogy.

The com­pany’s Mar­lex poly­eth­yl­ene resin pro­duced at Old Ocean will be de­liv­ered to cus­tomers in North Amer­ica and to strate­gic transload­ing fa­cil­i­ties across the United States for ex­port to all re­gions of the world.

The com­pany an­nounced plans to build these world-scale units in 2011 and broke ground in 2014. With these new as­sets in place, the pro­ducer in­tends to pen­e­trate new mar­kets to reach new cus­tomers, ex­pand their global pres­ence, and de­liver on their growth com­mit­ments to the owner com­pa­nies.
