Bamble.pngProduction capacity: LDPE 140kt; Compounding 10kt 

The polyolefin facilities of INEOS Bamble are located in an industrial area about 160 km south of Oslo and less than an hour’s drive from Sandefjord Airport Torp (TRF). The production started in 1977/1978. The Noretyl cracker on site (of approx. 600,000 tons per annum) provides the principal feedstocks of ethylene and propylene to the INEOS system and supplies the LDPE plant via dedicated pipeline.

Ownership has changed over the years; Saga Petrokjemi, Norsk Hydro, Statoil and Borealis until INEOS bought the facilities in September 2007. INEOS ChlorVinyls in Norway is also located here.

The production of LDPE-resins is used in pharma, coating, film, moulding wire & cable applications. 

The site’s SHE-policy’s target is to be a leader in the industry and to work continuously to improve SHE results by giving SHE top priority throughout the organization. Historically the site can document very good SHE-results, both regarding personnel and environment. 

As the site is surrounded by undeveloped areas, there is little exposure to the public. INEOS Bamble keeps an open dialogue with neighbours and the local community administration in the best interest of all parties.

Number of employees: Approximately 130

INEOS’ Grangemouth facility is a fully integrated refining and petrochemical complex, comprising three businesses: INEOS O&P UK, INEOS FPS and Petroineos (a refinery Joint Venture).

Located 40km west of Edinburgh on a 1700 acre site, it is strategically placed to make use of crude oil and natural gas liquids delivered directly from North Sea fields via the Forties Pipeline system (acquired by INEOS in 2017).

At the heart of the O&P UK business is the ethylene cracker, KG. The cracker produces feedstock for the two co-located polymer plants, Innovene 4 (polyethylene) and PP3 (polypropylene); as well as for the synthetic ethanol plant. Ethylene not consumed on site is also exported via a network of underground pipelines to the North East and North West of England for conversion into a wider range of (petro)chemicals or for onward export.

The O&P UK business is benefitting from significant investment totalling over £1bn. This includes infrastructure (2016) that has delivered a new additional feedstock for the ethylene cracker plant in the form of US shale gas ethane, a state of the art HQ building (2016) and a coordinated programme to regenerate the site for the future.

Projects are underway (2019) to construct a new steam and power plant, an additional HQ building for the INEOS FPS business and an extension to the furnace capability at KG.

The Koeln Site, re-branded in December 2005 as INEOS Koeln GmbH, was founded back in 1957 as a joint venture between the British oil giant BP and the German chemical and pharmaceutical company, Bayer. The site today employs approximately 2000 people. It manufactures a.o. Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) and the metallocene Linear Low Density Polyethylene (mLLDPE).

Its main feedstock is Naphtha which feeds two ethylene production units (crackers) of 1.3 million tons per annum total capacity delivered to the site by barges on the Rhine River or by pipelines. The site consists of 18 different plants which are set up in seven so-called assets and is connected to three major feedstock and product pipelines. It produces more than 4 million tes of products per annum, of which 85% were sold in Germany and the BENELUX Countries to nearly 900 customers. 70% of these customers have their companies located in a 200 km “Circle” around the site. This means that the Site is extremely well located with regard to feedstock supplies and transport of goods to customers. 

INEOS Polyolefins Customer Service Centre is also hosted on the site.

lavera.pngProduction capacity: HDPE 230kt, PP 140kt

The Lavera site is located 30 miles west of Marseille, in the south of France. The site occupies 650 hectares of land on the Mediterranean coast and is one of the largest petrochemicals sites in Europe.

The history of the Lavera industrial site began with the installation of the BP refinery in 1933, followed by the construction of a large petrochemical complex starting in the 1950s. In December 2005, INEOS Manufacturing France SAS, an INEOS group subsidiary, acquired all former BP group operations.

In 2011, INEOS entered into a joint-venture composed of INEOS trading and refining operations and PetroChina. In 2012, this resulted in the creation of Petroineos Manufacturing France SAS, with chemical operations being taken over by INEOS Chemicals Lavera (ICL) SAS.

This 650-hectare site refines crude oil and manufactures chemical products - two complementary activities, there being a high degree of synergy between them. The Lavera refinery, one of the most modern in France, has the highest annual throughput in the South East, processing 10 million tonnes of crude oil (the Lavera refinery processes 210,000 barrels of crude oil per day), and its highly-versatile prime collection of installations manufactures a wide range of oil and petroleum products for use by the general public, transport and industry.

The chemical site downstream from the refinery converts light distillation fractions into monomers (ethylene, propylene, C4 cut, etc.), polymers and a wide variety of chemical intermediates.

On site, polymer products include polyethylene and polypropylene as well as high performance chemicals such as ethylene oxide, glycol ethers, ethanol amines, acetates, ethylene glycol, Alkox and Indopol polybutene and oxoalcohols (n-butanol, iso-butanol, and 2-ethyl hexanol).

The Lavera site employs about 1,200 people (both INEOS and Petroineos)

The Lavera site also includes a Technology Center employing around 50 people to develop expertise in polymer catalysts and products, in Process technology, in Modelling and plant commissioning for PE and PP, as well as chemical and analytical engineering for all activities on site and other sites of the group.

The site holds certificates for its quality, environment and energy management systems according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 international standards.

On the Lavera site you will find different types of job and of course also different recruitments opportunities for beginner to expert. If you are looking for an internship, apprenticeship or a job, please contact our HR recruitment team by email:
