The $4 billion complex is the crown jewel of the old Dow Chemical's recent $6 billion expansion along the Gulf Coast. 

The project includes a massive ethane cracker which will provide the feedstock for some 1.5 million metric tons a year of ethylene.

A large portion of the expansion will go toward expanding the plant to 2 million metric tons a year, making it the world's largest ethylene production plant.

The ethane facility is near DowDuPont's new polyethylene plastics plant.
