Dual force majeures at United Bulk Terminals (UBT) in Davant, Louisiana, are ending following repairs to damages sustained in a November fire.
The first force majeure was lifted on Tuesday, after nearly two months, following repairs to the facility’s primary barge unloader that give the terminal multiple ways to unload vessels, terminal owner and operator T Parker Host said today. This repair concludes all maintenance related to the 21 November fire.
But an electrical surge stemming from an Entergy power outage caused a second force majeure on 17 January. Specific problems stemming from the power surge were not disclosed, but the secondary force majeure was expected to be lifted today at 7pm ET, after all repairs were done, the company said.
Electrical issues related to the fire had previously delayed repairs at the site, and the company on 16 January said they had halted repairs to the primary barge unloader.
