INEOS Oxide announces Chocolate Bayou as the location for its new EO investment in the USA.

July 08/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- INEOS Oxide confirms its new 1.2 billion lb (circa 520 kt) Ethylene Oxide (EO) unit and associated downstream Ethylene Oxide Derivatives (EOD) is to be built at INEOS Chocolate Bayou manufacturing works south of Houston on the Gulf of Mexico coast, said the company.

Chocolate Bayou is currently host to two Olefins crackers, two Polypropylene units and two Cogen facilities operated by INEOS O&P USA. A new Linear Alpha Olefins unit and associated downstream Poly Alpha Olefins unit are also currently under construction at the site by INEOS Oligomers.

The selection of Chocolate Bayou to host the new EO & EOD facility will reinforce on-site integration to the benefit of both the crackers and the derivative assets. The availability of additional land close to the unit will also enable interested third-parties to co-locate and consume EO by pipeline.

As MRC informed earlier, Ineos Oxide announced that following a detailed study it is moving forward with the next stage of its project to construct an Ethylene Oxide (EO) and Ethylene Oxide Derivatives (EOD) facility on the U.S. Gulf Coast. It is planned that the asset will be operational in 2022.
