Formosa Plastics Olefins Project in Point Comfort, Texas, USA

Formosa Plastics Corporation, U.S.A. announced to invest more than $1.7 billion at its Point Comfort, Texas site, USA, in new Olefins and Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) facility. This will be the third major expansion at the Point Comfort site and will consist of a:

  • New, grass-roots 800,000 MT/Y olefins cracker
  • Associated 600,000 MT/Y propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit
  • New 300,000 MT/Y low density polyethylene (LDPE) resin plant.

At the end, Formosa Plastics will benefit from 2.42 million t/y of ethylene and 1.24 million t/y of propylene

The new olefins cracker will take advantage of the increasingly reliable and low-cost domestic natural gas and supply feedstock both to existing production units and the new LDPE unit. The PDH unit will produce additional propylene, increasing operational flexibility. The addition of the country’s newest LDPE resin plant will complement the company’s existing product lines of polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and specialty PVC.

“This is a tremendous vote of confidence in the U.S. economy, the State of Texas and the Gulf Coast region’s workforce.” said site Vice President/General Manager Randy Smith.

The completion and start-up of the project is due in 2016.

  1. May I just say what a relief to uncover somebody who really knows what they are talking about online.
    You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light
    and make it important. More people ought to check this out and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you aren’t more popular because you surely have the gift.

  2. dear sir/madam
    with respect
    Excuse me if I can’t speak English well . I am a Persian chemical engineer .
    I have a comment (my life result) ; about manufacturing of expensive polymers .
    Although the mentioned comment is considered for ‹room temperature superconductor› ; but is also useful for manufacturing of polymers .
    I can’t complete and test that for ‹room temperature superconductor› ;
    because of poorness .
    So I decide to present and sell (or share) that to polymer companies to use for
    manufacturing of polymers .
    The comment , briefly , is as following :
    According to the process of polymers manufacturing ; basic problem and difficult
    is the breaking polymer during the process due to expansion and contraction and thermal turbulence.
    For completing the process ; it should be done in a suit flexible background
    (to prevent of contraction and expansion effects )
    under an appropriate electromagnetic induction (for setting the molecules in an appropriate direction with minimum thermal turbulence ) .
    Necessary efforts have been done for that ; but steel need scientific helps to complete and test .
    Would you please answer me whether you are agree or not .
    If it is necessary ; I can also submit that , with details
    (such as ‹room temperature superconductor› paper ) .
    Be sure your agreement will have too benefit for us together .
    Ready for necessary explains and cooperation .
    waiting for your reply.
    Your sincerely
    mohammadi
