Facility using Plantweb digital solution

Emerson is providing automation technologies, software, and analytics from its Plantweb digital platform for the Golden Triangle Polymers Project, a polymers facility on the Texas Gulf Coast. It is a joint venture between Chevron Phillips Chemical and an indirect subsidiary of QatarEnergy.

The company will deliver process control and safety systems through its DeltaV distributed control and safety instrumented systems, and Rosemount gas analyzer and chromatograph solutions. The project will also use Emerson’s Mimic and AspenTech HYSYS simulation software.


The Golden Triangle Polymers Project, located in Orange, Texas, includes a 2,080 KTA ethane cracker as well as two 1,000 KTA high-density polyethylene units. Operations are expected to begin in 2026.
