German chemical giant BASF SE announced it has chosen Freeport, Texas, to build its largest single-plant investment to date.

BASF, which was already tentatively planning to build a world-scale methane-to-propylene complex along the Gulf Coast, opted to go with its Freeport site as the location. BASF and Norway-based Yara International ASA are already planning to build a major ammonia plant in Freeport to open in 2017 at BASF’s existing property.
