“Please find the following Dow operations status update on recovery from recent historic and extreme
weather conditions in the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Manufacturing plant repairs and return to operations have progressed through late last week. Currently
Dow’s Propylene Oxide (PO), Propylene Glycol (PG) and Polyurethane (MDI, TDI, Polyols and Systems)
plants are all operating, although they are still subject to start-up variability. Raw material supplies remain
constrained; therefore, production rates will be limited even though these plants are back online.
Dow’s Polyurethane, PO and PG products remain under Force Majeure and we are constantly evaluating
when we will be able to improve this status. April allocations will be available this week and
communicated to you soon. We will continue to monitor the status of our operations and will remain in
close contact as conditions change
We thank you for your patience, partnership, and flexibility as we manage the evolving dynamics while
attempting to return to operations as quickly as possible. Our goal is to remain transparent to you through
these coming days and weeks with these communications.”
