Welcome to the Home of Petrochemical Projects
in the US Northeast

The Northeast US Petrochemical Construction Conference & Exhibition is positioned at the forefront of the burgeoning Petrochemical industry in the US Northeast region. This industry leading event is regarded as the most significant meeting place for Petrochemical engineering & construction professionals working at the heart of the region’s most important projects, where they meet to do business.

With Shell Chemicals Appalachia cracker project lighting the initial match, the Northeast region is poised to become the next growth region for petrochemical and related projects well into the next decade. With recent key industry developments including:

  • Ohio PTT cracker increasing in size (now a $10 billion project) with its new partner Daelim,
  • MOU of investment from China Energy of $84 billion into West Virginia
  • DOE’s development of a plan to drive growth in North East Petrochemical development

Now is the time to capture your share of this fast-growing market.

New for 2018: This year’s event is all about bringing together more energy construction professionals from the northeast than event before. Which is why we have co-located this event with our Gas Power Plant Engineering & Construction Conference, bringing together hundreds of Gas Power plant construction executives in one place. Access to both events is included within the pass price and will feature a shared plenary and exhibition. More info on the event can be found here -
