Cepsa agrees sale of PTA petrochemical business in Montreal to Indorama
Cepsa has agreed to sell its PTA business in Canada to Thailand-based Indorama as it seeks to focus on higher growth petrochemical areas where it is a leader.
The deal with Indorama for the sale of the PTA business in Montreal is subject to regulatory approval.

Cepsa´s main aim was to assure it sold its PTA plant in Montreal, which makes the raw material used to produce polyester, to a world leader in the sector, and that all professionals working at the site would see their working conditions unaffected during the sale process.

Cepsa plans to focus on markets where it has a stronger presence and the ability to develop assets to their full potential, such as its Phenol/Acetone and LAB/LABSA operations in Spain, Canada, Brazil, China and Indonesia.

About Indorama
Indorama is a world leader in the production of polyester and the acquisition gives it a stronger position in the North American market. Indorama consumes around 1.1 million tons of PTA a year in North America, for the subsequent production of PET. The company has 14,000 staff and an annual turnover of $7.5 billion.
