Huntsman restarts operations at Texas Gulf Coast plants

The Performance Products division of Huntsman Corporation announced that four of its five sites in Texas that were shutdown in preparation for Hurricane Ike have now restarted operations.

The Company's facilities at Port Neches, Freeport, Dayton and Conroe are returning back to normal operations, but the Chocolate Bayou site is still undergoing some repairs in preparation for an expected restart next week.

Commenting on the restarts, divisional President Don Stanutz said “I'm delighted with the progress that our team has made in getting these plants restarted, in what have been very difficult circumstances.

The preparations for, and rapid response to, Hurricane Ike by our associates really seem to have paid off in enabling the speedy restart of these facilities.

Of course, it will take us some time before we get back to full capacity for all products at all of the plants, but we're putting every effort into achieving this as soon as we safely can, and in the meantime we will continue to work closely with our customers to minimize any effects on their businesses.

Products from these plants will continue to be on allocation following the force majeure that was declared September 17.”

The products manufactured at the affected sites are:
• Chocolate Bayou, which produces Alkylates (LAB and related products);
• Port Neches: Ethylene, EO, EG, PO, PG, MTBE, Ethanolamines, Morpholine/DGA Agent, Surfactants, and PEGs;
• Freeport: Ethyleneamines;
• Dayton: Surfactants, PEGs and Blends;
• Conroe: Specialty Amines, Carbonates, Urethane Catalysts, and Surfactants.
