According to market sources, the new cracker being built in Lake Charles, Louisiana, by a joint venture between South Korea’s Lotte Chemical and US Westlake Chemical, is scheduled to start up in the first half of 2019, following the completion of its construction in late 2018.

The new steam cracker is expected to have a capacity of 1 million tons/year.

The new cracker was initially a joint venture between Lotte and Axiall Corp., which West Lake later acquired in 2016.

Lotte is also planning to build a 700,000 tons/year MEG plant at the same site.
