Lyondellbasell Expects to Start Up Cracker Expansion Project in Channelview, Texas, in June 2015

LyondellBasell announced that it expects to start up its cracker expansion project in Channelview, Texas, in June 2015. The project will expand ethylene capacity by 250 million lb/year (113,000 tonnes/year), and it should cost about $200 million. The company also plans to expand its cracker in Corpus Christi, Texas. That will add 800 million lb/year and cost $600 million. The company should start up the expansion in early 2016. The company will conduct a second expansion project at Channelview, which will add another 550 million lb/year of capacity. That project should start up in 2017 and cost $300 million. Those derivative units include a polyethylene (PE) plant and a metathesis unit, which would use ethylene to produce propylene. The PE unit could have a capacity of 1 billion lb/year and operations could start in the middle of 2017. The company has two crackers in Channelview, according to ICIS plants and projects. Each cracker has a capacity of 873,000 tonne/year. Its cracker in Corpus Christi has a capacity of 265,000 tonnes/year.

Striking Houston Union Workers Rejects LyondellBasell Offer

LyondellBasell Industries and striking United Steelworkers union members have yet to reach a local agreement to end the strike at the company's Houston refinery. And LyondellBasell says the union just rejected its last, best and final offer in a vote late on April 14. LyondellBasell officials told the Chronicle that the company would move forward with implementing the terms of its proposed contract on April 20. The company invited workers to return, but officials also told the Chronicle it would move forward with new hires. The union plans to meet April 15 to discuss next steps, the Chronicle reports. Earlier this month, LyondellBasell released a public letter venting its frustration with the strike, which began Feb. 1. After Houston-based Shell Oil Co., which was negotiating on behalf of the industry, reached an agreement with union representatives that could be used as a model, several companies reached local agreements to end the strikes. Houston-based Motiva Enterprises LLC was one of the first to do so. However, workers at two of Ohio-based Marathon Petroleum Corp.'s plants in Texas City and two of London-based BP PLC's refineries in the Midwest are still on strike, the Chronicle reports. The union represents 30,000 workers nationwide, 5,000 of which are in the Houston area. Texas is a right-to-work state, which means individuals are not required to join labor unions.
