St. James Parish Project

SLM is in advanced stages of developing a world scale Methanol project in St. James Parish, Louisiana.

The project will convert 180,000 MMBTU per day of natural gas into 5,300 metric tons per day (“MTPD”) of methanol for delivery to the United States Gulf Cost petrochemicals market and potentially overseas markets.

The project site in south Louisiana is situated at the nexus of North American petrochemicals production and prolific natural gas plays in Louisiana and Texas, with access to world-class transportation infrastructure, and interstate and intrastate natural gas pipelines.
