Jan 30, 2015

NEDERLAND, Texas, Jan. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- OCI Partners LP (NYSE: OCIP) ("the Partnership") announced today that it has completed all pre-turnaround and pre-shutdown works on its Beaumont facility. The Partnership also announced today that it has shut down its facility to commence its planned turnaround and complete its debottlenecking project that will increase its methanol and ammonia production capacities by 25% and 15% respectively. Methanol and ammonia production capacities are expected to be 912,500 metric tons and 304,775 metric tons per annum after completion of the project.

OCI Partners LP.

In addition to upgrading the capacities of both production lines, the scope of the debottlenecking project is also to: install a Selective Catalytic Reduction unit to reduce NOx emissions from the facility's reformer, a Saturator to reduce energy consumption and waste water generated from the facility and a new Flare System.

The turnaround is expected to improve the reliability factor of both production lines after completion, as some of the equipment that has caused technical issues in the past is either replaced or refurbished.

The Partnership expects to restart its upgraded ammonia and methanol production lines in approximately 4 weeks and 8 weeks respectively.
