About Our Company

Koch Methanol was established to optimize the supply of methanol to affiliates and third-party customers. We have a dedicated team of marketing and logistics professionals with a reputation for creating value and being trustworthy, reliable and service-oriented. Koch Methanol and its affiliates have offices in Houston, Wichita, Shanghai, Singapore and London and are committed to supplying methanol to a global customer base in a competitive and timely manner.

Our state-of-the-art facility, Koch Methanol St. James, is located on 1,300 acres in St. James Parish in Louisiana. This project was the largest greenfield investment in the methanol industry in Louisiana when construction began. The facility has the potential to produce about 1.8 million metric tons per year of International Methanol Producers and Consumers Association (IMPCA)-quality methanol. It is also designed to allow four modes of product distribution: truck, rail, barge and ocean vessel. A truck and rail terminal is adjacent to the methanol plant and a marine dock has been built on the Mississippi River.

The company is committed to running the facility safely and environmentally responsible. Koch Methanol St. James is an active participant in the community, contributing time, and talent to diverse organizations. We believe that strong communities are good for business. Our core philosophy is anchored in a belief that for a business to survive and prosper, it must develop and use its capabilities to create sustainable value for both its customers and society.
