Golden Triangle Polymers

Golden Triangle Polymers

CPChem and QatarEnergy have announced plans to construct an $8.5 billion integrated polymers facility in Orange, Texas. The companies created a joint venture company, Golden Triangle Polymers Company LLC, named for Texas's Golden Triangle region that encompasses the community of Orange. 

The new facility is expected to create more than 500 full-time jobs and approximately 4,500 construction jobs and generate an estimated $50 billion for the community in residual economic impacts over 20 years.

Once operational, the plant will produce Marlex® polyethylene. Polyethylene is used in the production of durable goods like pipe for natural gas and water delivery and recreational products such as kayaks and coolers. It is also used in essential packaging applications to protect and preserve food, helping prevent it from going to landfills, and keep medical supplies sterile.

The plant, expected to begin operations in 2026, will include a 2,080 KTA ethane cracker and two 1,000 KTA high-density polyethylene units. CPChem will manage engineering, procurement and construction for the project and operate the facility after start-up.

Our Focus


  • We have long been a good neighbor in Orange as our existing facility there has been part of the community for more than half a century.
  •  This facility will contribute to the social and economic fabric of the entire Golden Triangle region, bringing billions of dollars of economic impact and high-paying American jobs.


  • CPChem and QatarEnergy have a proven track record operating safe, reliable facilities in Qatar. The new plant will be managed through CPChem’s existing Operational Excellence System, developed and refined over decades of experience.
  • The facility will target ZERO injuries during construction and operation. 


  • We embrace practices and products that advance a circular economy and support efforts to reduce plastic waste.
  • This project is designed using modern emissions reduction technology and is targeting to have approximately 25% lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than similar facilities in the U.S. and Europe.


  • We strive to work alongside diverse, sustainable and socially responsible suppliers.
