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.

Interesting. We'll see how this plays out ...

I think you have your "C" & "G" transposed.

Look at the first letter in each of those 4 words in order.

I wrote them in correct order in my first post in this thread. Note "Gulf" precedes "Coast" so USGC is correct. I lived on or near it for 45 years . . . so far.

its all about the $$$$. i never "quite" believed group III's were as good as they were touting!!! yes they are a good value at this time with real synthetics being at least twice as costly.
