Dow’s expansion in Freeport is part of a multi-billion dollar plan that takes advantage of the low prices of shale gas feedstock. The PDH asset project is being developed via licensed propane dehydrogenation technology. At completion, the plant will be capable of producing 750,000 tons / year of polymer grade propylene from propane. The LHC-9 ethylene cracker will have a capacity of 1.5 million tons per year and be able to use both ethane and propane as feedstock. As part of the program Fluor is also performing EPC for the associated power, utilities and infrastructure facility upgrades to support each unit. Currently in progress at the Dow Oyster Creek Facility, the Gulfstream program utilizes the existing infrastructure of Dow’s largest site – one of the largest integrated chemical manufacturing complexes in the world.
