Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP (Chevron Phillips Chemical) has announced plans to relocate services provided by the company's Orange Technology Center, Texas to its Plastics Technology Center in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. The move will combine the team providing technical service for the film and coatings segment of the polyethylene market with the technical service molding and durables polyethylene team in Bartlesville. Once complete, the move is expected to enhance the array of expert technical services that Chevron Phillips Chemical provides its customers. However, this relocation will not affect the manufacturing capabilities of the Orange Plant, which is located on the same site as the Orange Technology Center. The plant produces high-density polyethylene. Company officials are currently evaluating options for the employees assigned to the Orange Technology Center including redeployment within the company and relocation packages.
Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP (Chevron Phillips Chemical) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC, one of the world's top producers of olefins and polyolefins and a leading supplier of aromatics, alpha olefins, styrenics, specialty chemicals, plastic piping and polymer resins.
