INEOS announces Chocolate Bayou, Texas as site of major new investment



British chemicals manufacturer INEOS has this week revealed the location of its new Ethylene Oxide (EO) investment in the USA. Chocolate Bayou south of Houston on the Gulf of Mexico coast will become home to INEOS’s latest investment in downstream and chemicals activity in the Americas.

Chocolate Bayou is currently host to two Olefins crackers, two Polypropylene units and two Cogen facilities operated by INEOS O&P USA. The investment will see the construction of a new 1.2 billion lb (circa 520 kt) Ethylene Oxide (EO) unit and associated downstream Ethylene Oxide Derivatives (EOD). 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.
