MATHESON to build Louisiana ASU to supply Lotte Chemical MEG plant


MATHESON has entered into an agreement with Lotte Chemical’s subsidiary, Lotte Chemical Louisiana LLC, to supply tonnage oxygen and nitrogen to its world-scale monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant in Louisiana.

The new MEG plant is part of Lotte Chemicals’ $3bn investment in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Kallman added that the investment not only significantly enhances the reliability of supply for its Lake Charles pipeline complex customers, but also further expands MATHESON’s argon capacity to support sales to direct customers and independent distributors.
