In a new headline address on 12 June in Houston, Texas, US, Chevron’s President of Manufacturing Mike Coyle will be announcing lessons learned over the last five years in downstream safety, workforce development, productivity, project sustainability, logistics and digitalisation.
He will also discuss how these experiences will have a bearing on the next big projects from Chevron now and in the years to come.
Mike will discuss the purchase of the Pasadena refinery from Petrobras (closure is pending), along with a large project just completed in Greater Houston through the joint venture Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC.
At peak production, this unit will produce 1.5 million tpy and will be one of the largest and most energy efficient crackers in the world. Ethylene produced by the new ethane cracker at Cedar Bayou will be used to meet the needs of the company’s derivative units, including the two new polyethylene units at Old Ocean, Texas, which are capable of producing a wide variety of products, ranging from metallocene linear low-density polyethylene to Advanced Dual Loop bimodal polyethylene resins.
These resins are turned into consumer and industrial products such as plastic films for food safety and preservation; and polyethylene pipe for water distribution and natural gas transport.
In addition, the ethylene will feed the company’s AlphaPlus® normal alpha olefins plants which are used extensively for polyethylene comonomers, plasticizers, synthetic motor oils, lubricants, automotive additives, surfactants, paper sizing, and in a wide range of other specialty applications.
To hear more about these projects, and many more, 10 000 downstream professionals will be descending on the GRB in Houston at Downstream 2019.
