OCI N.V. Announces Proposed Initial Public Offering of Beaumont
Methanol and Ammonia Production Business

OCI N.V. today announced that it intends to contribute its methanol and
ammonia facility near Beaumont, Texas to a newly formed limited
partnership (the "MLP") and that it expects the MLP to file a
registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
to register an initial public offering (the "IPO") of common units to
be issued by the MLP. OCI N.V. expects that the initial filing of the
registration statement will occur in June 2013.

Subject to market conditions and final approval by OCI N.V.'s board of
directors, OCI N.V. anticipates that a minority interest in the MLP
will be offered in the IPO in the second half of 2013. The purpose of
the IPO is to raise proceeds to repay outstanding indebtedness of the
MLP and to fund expenditures relating to the Beaumont facility's
planned debottlenecking project. Additional information will be
included in the registration statement once publicly filed.

                     DISCLOSURES UNDER RULE 135

A registration statement relating to the common units of the MLP to be
sold in the IPO is expected to be filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission, but has not been filed or become effective. This

of an offer to buy, any securities. This announcement is being issued
pursuant to, and in accordance with, Rule 135 under the Securities Act
of 1933, as amended.


This news release contains certain forward-looking statements within
