Enron And Owens-Illinois Sign $2.2 Billion Energy Agreement

Enron Energy Services, a subsidiary of Enron Corp., and Owens- Illinois, Inc. (O-I), a leading producer of glass and plastics packaging, have announced a 10-year energy management agreement. The agreement covers 53 O-I manufacturing facilities in 20 states and will cover projected energy purchases in excess of $2 billion. Through this initial agreement, Enron will work with O-I to manage the supply of electricity and natural gas to the company's facilities and will continue to look for ways to reduce O-I's aggregate demand.

"Securing affordable, reliable energy is a key element of our strategy to be the low-cost producer in every market we serve," said Richard A. Jun, vice president of corporate purchasing for Owens- Illinois. "This contract with Enron effectively adds its leadership in energy purchasing management to our ongoing commitment to cost management, an arrangement that should provide savings and reduce our exposure to short-term energy price fluctuations."
