Force Majeure at Oxea’s Intermediates unit in Bay City, Texas

08-Jul-2014 - USA

OXEA Corporation announced that it has encountered a significant production issue at its Bay City, Texas facility.  Due to a malfunction in the production process that, despite its best efforts could not be avoided, the Company has been unable to resume full production.  As a result, Oxea has been forced to make a declaration of force majeure, effective immediately for the following products:

  • n/i Butanol
  • n/i Butyl Acetate
  • n-Propanol
  • n-Propyl Acetate

Oxea is currently evaluating the effects of this event on its production capability and ability to supply.

All inventories of Oxo and Ester products are extremely low throughout the supply chain. Customer orders are being carefully monitored in an attempt to keep delays to a minimum.  Customers with any questions are advised to contact their Oxea account manager.
