INEOS Oligomers to build PAO plant in Texas

Today, INEOS Oligomers announced it had made the Final Investment Decision (FID) to build a new world scale, low viscosity Polyalphaolefin (PAO) unit on the INEOS site at Chocolate Bayou, TX. 

This unit will have a capacity of 120 Mmtpy and become the world’s largest single PAO train. The plant is scheduled to start-up in 3Q 2019.

The new PAO unit will obtain its feedstock from the adjacent Linear Alpha Olefin (LAO) plant, which is currently under construction at the same site. This investment represents a major step forward in the ambitious growth plans for the INEOS Oligomers PAO business, complementing existing units in La Porte, TX and Feluy, Belgium.
