According to media reports, Shell is planning to expand its petrochemical complex in Geismar, Louisiana, the US as the company aims to produce more chemicals through the use of low-cost shale gas. The estimated investment cost was reported at a $717 million.

Shell is expected to begin the expansion works in the first quarter of 2016, which will reportedly include the addition of a fourth production unit to the site. Once the expansion is completed, the Geismar complex’s total capacity will increase by 425,000 tons/year to reach 1.3 million tons/year.
