Our facility

A world-class petrochemical complex

GCGV is a petrochemical complex that produces the building blocks of everyday products used around the world right here in the Coastal Bend. 

Polyethylene can be used in the production of medical supplies, food packaging, agricultural film and building and construction materials. Monoethylene glycol can be used to manufacture polyester clothing, food packaging and liquid containers.

The facility includes a 1.8 million metric ton ethane steam cracker that produces ethylene, which then feeds three derivative units: one monoethylene glycol unit and two polyethylene units.
