BP has operated at the site since 1967, when it bought the site distilleries, prompting Saltend's expansion to a world-scale commodity chemicals manufacture.
Saltend Chemicals Park was founded in 2009 to manage the site and offer a mature and extensive infrastructure to support and service operations.
The recent £500m includes the £350m Vivergo Fuels plant and BP's £40m in a replacement "reformer" facility.
