ABSTRACT
The article focuses on increased capacity in the U.S. cracker capacity by 2016. It states ExxonMobile Chemical (EMC) announced a new 1.5 million tonne/year cracker in Texas which would bring new ethylene capacity in the U.S. to 33 percent of existing capacity. It mentions the ethane cracker would provide ethylene feedstock for high-performance polyethylene production lines at EMC's plastics plant in Mont Belvieu, Texas. It comments that the expansion is driven by the shale gas boom in the U.S.
