According to market sources, INEOS’ Grangemouth, Scotland cracker will receive its first US ethane shipment on September 27.

Ineos’ CEO Tom Crotty was quoted as saying that a shipment is headed to Rafnes, Norway while the shipment for Grangemouth has not departed yet, but is scheduled to arrive on September 27.
INEOS’ first shipment from the US carrying 25,000 cubic meters of ethane arrived in Rafnes, Norway in March, according to the company’s former statements.

The company has built ethane gas storage tanks both in Rafnes, Norway and Grangemouth, Scotland, with the capacities of 560,000 tons/year and 1.06 million tons/year, respectively. The company will use the gas as fuel and feedstock at these steam crackers.
