Ineos Selects Chocolate Bayou for New EO Unit
INEOS Oxide will build a new ethylene oxide/ethylene oxide derivatives facility south of Houston.

INEOS Oxide reported Tuesday that it will build a new ethylene oxide (EO) unit and associated downstream ethylene oxide derivatives (EOD) facility at the company’s Chocolate Bayou Works manufacturing site south of Houston.

In a written statement, INEOS noted that adding the EO and EOD capacity at Chocolate Bayou will reinforce on-site integration. Moreover, the company also stated that the availability of additional land near the new unit will allow third parties to co-locate and consume EO via pipeline.

INEOS Olefins and Polymers USA already operated two olefin crackers, two polypropylene units and two cogen facilities at Chocolate Bayou, a 2,400-acre complex that INEOS’ website notes boasts the second-largest hydrocarbons cracker in the United States. Also, INEOS Oligomers is building a new linear alpha olefins unit and an associated downstream poly alpha olefins unit at the site.
