Lyondell Allyl Alcohol and BDO & Derivatives Allocation. April 1st, 2021

In Pricing by PattyH

Per the previous letter dated February 16, 2021, Lyondell Chemical Company declared a force majeure
event for all products within our Americas PO & derivatives portfolio – Propylene Oxide, Propylene
Glycols, Allyl Alcohol, BDO & Derivatives, P-Series Glycol Ethers, P-Specialties Glycol Ethers, and
Tertiary Butyl Acetate, effective February 16, 2021.

In a letter date March 30, 2021, Lyondell Chemical Company announced a sales allocation for Allyl
Alcohol and BDO & Derivatives, effective April 1, 2021. Unfortunately, since that letter was sent, a
third party raw material supplier has experienced an operational upset, which has resulted in a shortage of
raw material supply for reasons beyond our reasonable control. Accordingly, effective immediately, we
are implementing a revised sales allocation for Allyl Alcohol and BDO & Derivatives, as outlined below.
Allocation volumes have been determined based on customer’s average monthly purchases for the
previous 6 months (August 2020 – January 2021).

Allyl Alcohol (AA) 100%
1, 4 Butanediol (BDO) 50%
2-Methyl-1,3 Propanediol (MPDiol®) 50%
N-Methyl-2-Pyrrolidone (NMP) 50%
Tetrahydrofuran (THF) 50%
Polytetramethyl Glycol, PolyMEG 1000® 50%
Polytetramethyl Glycol, PolyMEG 2000® 50%
Polytetramethyl Glycol, PolyMEG 650® 50%
Styrene Allyl Alcohol (SAA 100) 100%
