MEGlobal plans new MEG Facility at Dow’s Texas site

MEGlobal, a wholly-owned subsidiary of EQUATE Petrochemical Company, plans to construct a new world-scale monoethylene glycol (MEG) manufacturing facility at Dow’s Oyster Creek site in Freeport, Texas. The new MEG facility is MEGlobal’s first manufacturing unit in the United States.

Dow’s new ethylene cracker is part of the existing infrastructure that makes the Dow Texas Operations attractive for locating the new MEG plant on the U.S. Gulf Coast. Construction continues to progress on the site, with the cracker more than 40% complete and on track for start-up in the Q2 2017. Dow will also complete ethane feedstock flexibility for an ethylene cracker at the Company’s Louisiana Operations site, on track for start-up in the second half of 2016. These projects will complement previous milestones of Dow’s completed investments in the U.S. Gulf Coast including the restart of an ethylene cracker at the Company’s St. Charles Operations site in 2012 and the world-scale propane dehydrogenation unit (PDH) that began commercial operations in December 2015.
