Indorama Force Majeure Notice. April 15th, 2022
In Pricing by PattyHApril 22, 2022
On Friday, April 15, 2022 we experienced a mechanical breakdown of sections of our
PO/MTBE unit at our manufacturing facility in Port Neches, TX (the “Site”). Because of this
issue, we were forced to shut down a portion of our manufacturing facilities at the Site. This
shut down prevents us from performing as required under various manufacturing and supply
contracts. As a result, Indorama declares Force Majeure under all contracts requiring Indorama
to manufacture, supply or otherwise deliver:
(i) PROPYLENE OXIDE (ALL GRADES and SPECIFICATIONS);
(ii) PROPYLENE GLYCOL (ALL GRADES and SPECIFICATIONS); and
(iii) METHYL TERTIARY BUTYL ETHER – MTBE (collectively, “Products”).
This Force Majeure is effective as of April 15, 2022 at 00:00 a.m. CDT. We will strive
to promptly update you of all material developments as soon as they occur and will notify you
shortly of your allocation regarding the manufacture, supply or delivery of Products for the
remainder of the month of April and for the month of May.
We expect to start up and resume operations as soon as reasonably practical, consistent
with our commitment to the safety of our employees and the communities in which we operate.
