In Blog, News, Pricing by John Lagae

As per the previous letter dated October 17, 2018, due to operational failure of primary separation column in the ethylene glycol ether unit at the Bayport Ethylene Oxide and Derivatives plant, we have curtailed the production of E-Series Glycol Ether Solvents at Bayport, Texas and have declared a force majeure event for Glycol Ether EB (Mono-ethylene Glycol Butyl Ether). The original effective date of the force majeure event is October 17, 2018.

As a result of this event, Equistar implemented sales allocation for this product. Allocation level shown in the table below is effective November 1, 2018. Allocation volumes were determined based on purchases made in the prior six (6) months; specifically, April through September 2018.
