The new plant will be in La Porte which will put it near the Houston Ship Channel.  It is part of a $4 billion expansion program and this phase alone will create around 1,000 construction jobs.

The petrochemical business is expanding because of cheap shale natural gas.  One of the unstated reasons why the investment in this business is growing is because there is no alternative fuel for this busienss which is vital to modernity.
