The Grangemouth refinery and petrochemicals facility is INEOS’ largest production centre. It is a deeply integrated site exploiting synergies between the refinery and the petrochemicals plants. Located 40 kilometres west of Edinburgh on a 1700-acre site, the petrochemicals facility manufactures over 2 million tonnes of chemicals products per annum and the refinery has an annual capacity of 10 million tonnes.
At the heart of the petrochemicals site is the KG ethylene cracker which produces the feed materials used by the other chemicals plants. The unit has an ethylene production capacity of around 1 million tonnes per year between them. The KG (Kinneil Gas) unit is a gas cracker using mainly ethane and propane as its raw materials. Grangemouth's ability to crack gas feedstocks has significant commercial advantages.
The Grangemouth Refinery processes around 200,000 barrels per day of crude oil, producing more than 9 million tonnes of fuels per year. The refinery’s oil feedstock is mainly supplied by the neighbouring INEOS-operated Kinneil oil and gas processing plant, with an increasing proportion imported to the site via pipeline from the Finnart Ocean Terminal located 90 kilometres west of Grangemouth.
