According to a statement in Sasol’s web site, the South Africa-based company has completed around 74% of its new Lake Charles Chemicals Project (LCCP) in Louisiana. Sasol expects to conduct the commissioning in 2018.

According to the statement, early works activities, site preparation and civil construction work have been under way since 2014 and they are nearly complete as of June 2017. Engineering has been around 85% complete while the procurement of equipment has been almost 100% committed.

The complex will house an ethane cracker that will produce 1.5 million tons/year of ethylene as well as six chemical manufacturing plants. The ethylene produced in the facility will be used in six downstream plants on-site to produce a range of high-value derivatives including ethylene oxide, mono-ethylene glycol, low density and linear low density polyethylene. Sasol aims to further strengthen its position in the global chemicals market via the world-scale complex.
