TEXACO COMPLETES SALE OF PO/MTBE BUSINESS TO HUNTSMAN SPECIALTY CHEMICALS CORPORATION
Channelview manufacturing site :
Ground was broken for the plant in 1974. Production of ethylbenzene (EB), propylene oxide (PO) and styrene monomer (SM) began with a single unit in 1977. Originally the plant operated as the Channelview plant of Oxirane Chemical Company, a joint venture of Halcon International and ARCO Chemical established in 1966. In 1980, Halcon sold its interest in Oxirane to ARCO Chemical, a subsidiary of Atlantic Richfield. In 1990, ARCO Chemical became a publicly held company. Lyondell acquired the Channelview plant and other ARCO Chemical assets in 1998.
