ExxonMobil started construction on the ethane cracker at the Baytown, Texas, complex and associated premium product facilities in nearby Mont Belvieu.

The steam cracker will have a capacity of up to 1.5 million tons per year and provide ethylene feedstock for chemical processing at two new 650,000 tons per year high-performance polyethylene lines at the Mont Belvieu plant.

ExxonMobil Chairman Rex Tillerson said, “ExxonMobil’s financial results were achieved through strong operational performance and portfolio management. We continue to enhance shareholder value by funding capital projects and delivering robust shareholder returns through dividends and share purchases.”
