Americas Styrenics (AmSty) announce a project to construct a deep water dock at its styrene production facility at St. James, Louisiana, located on the Mississippi River.

Detailed engineering is underway for the project with local permitting expected by mid-2014. AmSty’s deep water dock facility at the St. James Plant is expected to be operational in late 2015.

“AmSty’s St. James Plant is a world-scale styrene facility and also one of the largest consumers of hydrocarbon feedstocks on the Lower Mississippi River,” said Randy Pogue, Vice President - Styrene, Feedstocks and Corporate Services. “We completed economic and engineering studies earlier this year and have internal approvals in place to begin the project."

He continued: "This project will increase our marine capability to include large ocean-going vessels that are critical to feedstock imports and will also support AmSty’s styrene export business. Once completed, we expect this project to enhance the operational flexibility and export capabilities for our St. James Plant.”
