February 03/2012

(Fibre2fashion) -- INEOS, the leading petrochemical firm in US, intends to enhance the ethylene production capacity of its Texas based Chocolate Bayou facility by 6.5 percent, next year, Richard Longden, Group Communications Manager of the company, has said.

The company plans to enhance its ethane cracking capacity and to develop infrastructure facilities associated with the complex. For the purpose, the company has already obtained requisite permits for engineering and construction works.

By end of next year, the project is seen to add an extra 115,000 tons per year (tpy) capacity to the Chocolate Bayou complexs existing capacity.

Presently, the company operates two crackers at Chocolate Bayou, which have a combined capacity of 1.792 million tpy.

Besides its Chocolate Bayou facility, the company also has a high density polyethylene (HDPE) facility at La Porte, Texas, which has a capacity of 950,000 tpy. It also operates another HDPE plant at Cedar Bayou, Texas,in association with Chevron- Phillips Chemical.

Last December, INEOS said it had shortlisted three locations on the US Gulf Coast as preferred locations for its proposed 500,000 tpy ethylene oxide (EO) and derivatives facility. It said it would select a location from Chocolate Bayou, Plaquemine, Louisiana, Battleground and La Porte.
