Sid Rich Plans UTA for Borger

Filed under: Carbon Black — Notch @ 3:57 pm

Sid Richardson has scheduled a unit turnaround for a tread unit at Borger, Texas for April. The UTA will shut down Unit 4 for about 2 weeks. The company doesn’t expect the project to result in any supply disruptions. The project was originally scheduled for October/November but Sid moved it up due to the sluggish conditions in the US carbon black market. Notch expects that we will see more of this — accelerated maintenance schedules and perhaps some downtime for selected units — as the US industry tries to manage capacity most efficiently during the slowdown.
