Continued NGL Growth
As opportunities grow for natural gas liquids (NGLs) processing, pipelines, storage, and export capacity, Phillips 66 is expanding its Sweeny Hub on the Gulf Coast. This project includes the construction of two 150,000 barrel-per-day (BPD) natural gas liquids (NGL) fractionators at the company's Sweeny Refinery, and additional NGL storage capacity at the nearby Phillips 66 Partners Clemens Caverns Storage Facility.
This work is expected to create approximately 2,000 construction jobs and more than 25 new full-time jobs in Brazoria County.
Our Sweeny Hub expansion plans include new fractionators, storage and pipeline infrastructure. The Hub takes raw NGLs (known as Y-Grade) and makes purity products (ethane, propane, butane, and natural gasoline) to fuel our lives here in the U.S. and abroad. Much of the purity products will supply the U.S. Gulf Coast petrochemical and fuels markets and some will be exported through our Freeport Terminal on the Texas Gulf Coast to other countries that need energy for quality of life and economic growth.
