Commissioning Underway for SABIC/ExxonMobil Project in Texas
Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) recently announced that the Gulf Coast Growth Ventures project in Texas has indeed begun its commissioning procedures ahead of its expected startup by the end of 2021. SABIC is in a joint venture with ExxonMobil on this project.
The Gulf Coast Growth Ventures project is a $7.3 billion-dollar petrochemical venture that includes a 1.8 MMtpy ethane cracker, a 1.1 MMtpy mono-ethylene glycol unit, and twin polyethylene units with a combined capacity of 1.3 MMtpy, or 650,000 tpy a piece. This project has maintained its pace throughout 2021, with the mechanical completion of the polyethylene and mono-ethylene glycol units announced earlier this year in July. The Gulf Coast Growth Ventures project is part of SABIC’s plan to increase its petrochemical profile in North America for a wide range of products.
