The availability of additional land close to the unit will also enable interested third-parties to co-locate and consume EO by pipeline

The selection of Chocolate Bayou to host the new EO and EOD facility will reinforce on-site integration to the benefit of both the crackers and the derivative assets.

INEOS Oxide confirmed its 520kt 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.

Chocolate Bayou is currently host to two olefins crackers, two polypropylene units and two cogen facilities operated by INEOS O&P USA. A linear alpha olefins unit and associated downstream poly alpha olefins unit are also currently under construction at the site by INEOS Oligomers.
