Westlake to expand ethylene capacity

US-based Westlake Chemical Corporation has started work on its previously announced expansion of the Petro 2 ethylene unit at its complex in Lake Charles.

This expansion will be completed in conjunction with a planned maintenance turnaround and will increase ethane-based ethylene capacity by 110,000 tonnes/year in support of the company's ethylene integration strategy. The unit is expected to be down approximately 60 days for the work to be completed.

The Texas-headquartered firm’s range of products includes ethylene, polyethylene, styrene, propylene, caustic, VCM, PVC and PVC pipe, windows and fence.
