The US$2.5bn initiative contemplates the construction of a cracking unit to produce 1Mt/y of ethylene and another three integrated polymerization units to produce 450,000t/y of polyethylene of high density, 350,000t/y of linear polyethylene of low density and 200,000t/y of polyethylene of low density. Production will reduce petrochemical imports by US$2bn. Construction will require 9800 workers. During operation 800 direct jobs will be created.
