San Antonio (TX), USA – Zachry Group and its partner Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, Inc. (“MHIA”) have been selected to construct a two-train polyethylene unit that will be part of a new chemical complex near Corpus Christi, Texas.  Upon completion, the complex will include a 1.8 million ton per annum (MTPA) ethane steam cracker, a 1.1 mtpa monoethylene glycol (MEG) unit, and the polyethylene unit that will be built by Zachry Group.

The complex is planned by Gulf Coast Growth Ventures (GCGV), a joint venture of ExxonMobil and Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC). Zachry Group plans to begin major construction activities in Gregory, Texas, later this year, and the polyethylene unit is expected to be completed by 2022.
