DALLAS - Oxea Corp.’s U.S. intermediates business announced on June 11 that it has experienced technical issues coming out of a major scheduled maintenance turnaround at its Bay City, TX, facility. All units are now up and running, although inventories of Oxo and esters are extremely low throughout the supply chain.

Customer orders are being carefully monitored in an attempt to keep delays to a minimum. Oxea is actively working to fulfill customer orders and will continue to implement the previously announced sales control. Customers with any questions are advised to contact their account manager at Oxea.

Oxea has implemented a 100% sales control on all products in the Intermediates portfolio. The sales control will be based on the average monthly consumption over the last six months or as allowed by contract.
