Huntsman reports insignificant damage to its plants from hurricane Ike

Peter R. Huntsman, President and CEO of Huntsman Corporation announced that initial assessments indicate that its facilities in the Texas Gulf Coast region suffered no significant damage as a result of Hurricane Ike.

“I'm pleased to say that damage to our plants appears to have been less than we might have expected given the storm's severity, which is in no small part due to the thorough preparation and orderly shutdown of the plants undertaken by Huntsman associates in advance of Ike reaching land.

However, none of the plants are operational at the moment, as we are constrained by the availability of power and in some cases we anticipate raw material and transportation restrictions”, he said.

“We will be working together with our partners to get all of our plants back up and running, in a safe and efficient manner and will communicate directly with our customers with regard to product availability”, he added.

Huntsman plants affected by Hurricane Ike are:
• Chocolate Bayou, which produces Alkylates (LAB and related products);
• Port Neches: Ethylene, EO, EG, PO, PG, MTBE, Ethanolamines, Morpholine/DGA and Surfactants, PEGs;
• Freeport: Ethyleneamines;
• Dayton: Surfactants, PEGs and Blends;
• Conroe: Specialty Amines, Carbonates, Urethane Catalysts, and Surfactants.

Huntsman's MDI plant in Geismar, Louisiana was not affected by Hurricane Ike and has recently resumed production after losing power as a result of Hurricane Gustav.
