2014 was one of our best years for PE sales at approximately 3.5 billion pounds, and was a record sales year for both PE2 and Moore LDPE – demonstrating our continued commitment to be leaders in our markets, aligning our efforts closely with our customers.

Full year 2014 operating profit for our Olefins/Polyolefins business unit remained strong and is consistent with full year 2013 operating profit.

During 2014, our capital expenditures were almost $600 million, an increase of more than 20% as compared to 2013, primarily due to continued spending on our NOVA 2020 growth projects. Capital spending in 2014 was slightly lower than the $700 million previously announced due to some PE 1 expansion costs shifting into 2015 and the lower Canadian dollar. Capital expenditures for 2015 are now expected to be around $850 million.
