OxyChem to build $100m storage plant

   OxyChem plans to start building a $100 million ethylene storage plant at Clemville this summer, OxyChem representatives told Matagorda County Commissioners Court Monday morning.
   The plant – OxyChem’s first in Matagorda County – will store ethylene in Texas Brine’s caverns in the Clemville salt dome.
   “We plan to start in the late second quarter or early third quarter this year,” said William Shock, a senior tax agent for OxyChem, which has several plants along the Texas and Louisiana gulf coasts.
   Construction will take about a year, Shock told commissioners court at the regular meeting Monday and gave a brief PowerPoint presentation on the project.
