The Woodlands, Texas – October 30, 2015 – AmSty announced the completion of its deep water dock, built at its styrene production facility at St. James, Louisiana, located on the Mississippi River. After two years of planning and construction, the dock was finished in early October and is now operational.
“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 Frank Wright, Vice President – Feedstocks. “This project has increased our marine capability to include large ocean-going vessels that are critical to feedstock imports and will also support AmSty’s styrene and ethylbenzene export business. We expect this project to enhance the operational flexibility and export capabilities of our St. James Plant.” Fabrication and installation work was performed by Boh Bros. Construction.
“We are exceptionally proud of our St. James styrene facility and are excited to lead our industry in this important step,” said Brad Crocker, President and Chief Executive Officer.
