This thesis deals about the organization and planning of the petrochemical industries in Brazil with a special emphasis on the North East petrochemical 'pole' (see 2.2), an industrial project whose core industries are settled in the Municipality of Camacari. That pole is the leading industrial development project in the region, headed by the government and having specific social and regional objectives. The thesis examines the policies adopted to attain those objectives and the progress made so far. The effects of the pole on the whole region being very limited, the thesis makes an analysis of the changes which occurred at Camagari after the implementation of the pole and relates those changes to the overall needs of the region. The main findings give a credit to the planning efforts in making a pole fully integrated with the use of regional feed-stocks, but point to failures in the policies designed to turn that pole into a catalyst of regional development. The policies adopted were more suited to create an industrial enclave, rather than develop an industrial pole.
