The Jose Olefins Complex is a world‑scale grassroots integrated petrochemical complex to be developed within the Jose Petrochemical Complex in Venezuela.

The Jose Olefins Complex will support the development of the plastics sector in Venezuela and export markets in North America, Europe and Latin America.

WorleyParsons is providing front‑end engineering design and Project Management Consultancy services to Polimerica for the complex, which consists of an ethylene plant plus three polyethylene plants (LDPE, HDPE and LLDPE) and facilities.

The use of the WorleyParsons Project Management Process to underpin delivery has added significant value to the project. The system has enabled an effective mega‑project methodology to be adopted by a newly formed client organization, providing a sound basis for our relationship with Pequiven and Braskem.

We are also utilizing our skills, knowledge, and prior project experience in Venezuela, and the Jose area in particular, to further our presence and to meet the expanding needs of our customers in this region.
