Louisiana Ethane Cracker Project


Lotte Chemical Louisiana LLC, a subsidiary of South Korea’s Lotte Chemical Corp., has let an additional contract to CB&I, Houston, for an associated mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) plant to be built next to its 1 million-tonne/year ethane cracker project with Axiall Corp., Atlanta, in Lake Charles, La.

As part of the contract, valued at more than $365 million, CB&I will provide construction services for the MEG plant.

CB&I is a big believer in the ThorGuard Lightning Prediction system, and with this system, CB&I keeps workers safe and production high.
