Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM) and Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) are planning to build a petrochemical plant in Corpus Christi, Texas, the US.
The project involves the construction of a petrochemical plant on 526ha of land. It includes the construction of a chemical laboratory, a production unit, a processing plant, an ethane steam cracker with a production capacity of nearly 1.8 million tons of ethylene a year, storage tanks, an administrative space and the installation of related machinery.
In July 2016, XOM and SABIC announced the project with four preferable sites, two in Louisiana and the other in Texas near Victoria.
In January 2017, XOM and SABIC selected the project to come in Texas because of its access to cheap and abundant natural gas from Texas shale fields, as well as the proximity to ports, railways and highways.
On April 19, 2017, XOM and SABIC officially announced the site of the project in Corpus Christi, San Patricio County, Texas.
XOM and SABIC are planning to apply for environmental state permits with, final investment decision expected after the permits are granted.
XOM is also filing permits for air quality and wastewater permits through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
Construction is expected to complete by early 2024.
