Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, as operator for Golden Triangle Polymers, on-boarded its first class of 28 process operators this week for the world-scale integrated polymers facility under construction in Orange County, Texas. The newly hired operators come primarily from the nine-County Golden Triangle region.

“Operations makes up most of the workforce for our petrochemical facilities, and these highly skilled employees are the backbone of what we do, helping to ensure we operate safely and reliably. As a newly constructed plant, welcoming this first class of operators is a historic milestone. This facility will provide good paying jobs and economic benefits for decades to come, and people will look back and remember this team as having started it all,” said Chad Jennings, plant manager for Golden Triangle Polymers.

Golden Triangle Polymers is a joint venture between Chevron Phillips Chemical and an indirect subsidiary of QatarEnergy. 

Local First is a program Golden Triangle Polymers launched earlier this year with a $400,000 donation. Through the Local First program, the company is collaborating with Orange County and Workforce Solutions Southeast Texas to prioritize Orange County and the Golden Triangle region first when sourcing suppliers, vendors, and workforce.
