North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple and William Jeffrey Gilliam, CEO of Badlands NGL, LLC, announced plans to build new polyethylene (PE) manufacturing facility in North Dakota with investment of $4 billion.


This new manufacturing facility is fully aligned to reduce flaring of natural gas, add value to energy resources in North Dakota and create diverse job opportunities across the state.

Polyethylene facility will convert ethane gas to low density and high density plastics which are used to make a wide range of end products for consumers and industry.  This facility will be able to produce 1.5 million metric tons of polyethylene, or 3.3 billion pounds annually, and it will employ 500 highly trained people.

This New project in North Dakota will enable Badlands NGL to efficiently ship their polyethylene products to world markets from the Pacific Northwest and from Atlantic ports. For developing the world-class manufacturing plant, Badlands is working with two partners, Tecnicas Reunidas, based in Madrid, Spain, and Vinmar Projects of Houston, Texas.
