EQUATE celebrated the third anniversary of the inauguration of MEGlobal

On September 9, 2022, EQUATE celebrated the third anniversary of the inauguration of its MEGlobal Americas. Inc. (MEGlobal) Oyster Creek, Texas site, marking several milestones of success in safety, production and sustainability.

The site was completed ahead of schedule and below budget and has now celebrated three years of zero safety incidents. It is producing top quality ethylene glycol at record rates, already increasing its nameplate capacity from 750,000 mta to 1,000,000 mta after its first year.

The first US-based site in the EQUATE Group, Oyster Creek garnered several awards for its construction including the 2020 Best Project in the Industrial/Energy category and a Global Award of Merit award by ENR. Companies such as Dow, PIC, Fluor, Praxair, Evoqua and others were an integral part of the project’s success.

“We appreciate all those who have made the Oyster Creek Site a shining example of what can be accomplished through teamwork and dedication,” said EQUATE President and CEO Naser Aldousari. “It has been a truly global achievement with benefits to both Kuwait and the U.S., providing us with greater flexibility to satisfy our customers’ needs while capitalizing on cost-effective U.S. shale gas. This site built on our global footprint and has enabled EQUATE to grow our value-added business as a leading ethylene glycol producer and supplier.”

In addition to demonstrating operational excellence, the MEGlobal Oyster Creek site is an integral part of the community and was named the 2021 Industry Partner of the Year by the Brazosport Area Chamber of Commerce.

“The accomplishment of the Oyster Creek site in its first three years are impressive and demonstrate EQUATE’s ability to strategically add to its portfolio with far-reaching financial and social benefits,” said Mr. Aldousari. “We want to thank everyone who has been a part of this journey with us.”
