Ineos Will Buy Norwegian Units

Department: Business

The chemical giant Ineos is acquiring the Norwegian petrochemical business of Borealis for roughly $380 million. The deal includes 50% of the Noretyl ethylene cracker at Rafnes and associated businesses at the nearby Bamble polyolefins site. The purchase gives Ineos full ownership of the Rafnes cracker; last month it acquired the cracker's co-owner, the Kerling polymers business of Norsk Hydro. According to Ineos, the acquisition allows it to optimize operations across Scotland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and France.
