According to a press release on Emerson Automation Technology and Expertise’s website, Sasol has selected Emerson for automations of its $8.9 billion petrochemical site in Lake Charles, LA, USA. The construction of the massive site continues while it is expected to be completed in 2018.

Once the project is completed, the company’s petrochemical production capacity in the US will triple while the new site will use low cost ethane as feedstock.

The new petrochemical project will house a 1.5 million tons/year ethane cracker as well as six chemical manufacturing plants, including a 1.98 billion lbs/year (approximately 900,000 tons/year) PE plant, spread evenly between LDPE and LLDPE, and a 660 million lbs/year (approximately 300,000 tons/year) ethylene oxide plant.
