INEOS has let a contract for a new PAO production facility in Chocolate Bayou, TX. With the many NGL to petrochemicals steam cracking plants being built in the USGC, will PAO economics squeeze out GTL technology as a lube base stock in coming years due to the surfeit of future ethylene production?

PAO never left. Blended with GroupIII, sure, but M1's base oils have been 1/5 to 2/3 PAO for years now.
