Houston, Texas/USA – Lyondell Basell’s 3,900-acre Channel View petrochemical facility, one of the largest facilities along the Gulf Coast, is undergoing an expansion to increase production of ethylene units — an essential ingredient in clothing, bedding, packaging and automotive parts — as well as propylene, butadiene and benzene.

KBR was awarded the contract for the Channelview Complex expansion and awarded industry leader Tioga as its supplier of choice over several other bidders for the Lyondell Basell ethanol plant expansion project.

Project Depends on On–Time Delivery

The expansion project required timely delivery of specialty pipes for chemical composition; each grade made of certain percentages and composition of material outside of the industry ASTM standards.

By working closely with the mills throughout the process, Tioga delivered mission-critical materials on time and in budget — just as would be expected from the 70-year industry veteran.
