Oxea Lifts Force Majeure in Oberhausen, Germany

The chemical company Oxea has lifted its declaration of force majeure for 2-Ethylhexanoic Acid, Propionaldehyde Europe, and TCD Alcohol. The production units in Oberhausen, Germany, are running at normal capacity again.

The declaration of force majeure had become necessary because of an incident at an important raw material supplier at the Oberhausen site on February 21, 2020. As a result of this operational disruption, Oxea had to temporarily restrict supplies of certain products that the company manufactures in Oberhausen. The site partner has now partially rectified the operational disruption. As a result, Oxea will be able to gradually meet its delivery obligations.

Oxea expects to lift force majeure for 2-Ethylhexanol, n-Butyraldehyde Europe, and n-Butanol Europe in the second half of April.
