Oğuz Erkan, the President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the General Partner, said, “Having someone as accomplished as Governor Mead on the General Partner’s board of directors will be extremely valuable to the organization and for the State of Wyoming. Ciner is in an unprecedented period, and I am thrilled that Governor Mead will be on this journey with the Partnership to help it navigate the exciting changes that are ahead for the organization.”

Mead said, “In my time as Governor, I was keenly aware and appreciative that Wyoming’s number one international export commodity was — and continues to be — soda ash. As Governor, I saw the great benefit of Ciner mining trona and producing soda ash. Ciner provides many high-paying jobs for Wyoming citizens and has been a valuable institution for Wyoming for many years. To now serve on the Ciner board as the company continues to reinvest in its operations while producing a valuable commodity that is used around the world, is exciting and a privilege.”


Ciner Resources LP, a master limited partnership, operates the trona ore mining and soda ash production business of Ciner Wyoming, LLC (“Ciner Wyoming”), one of the largest and lowest cost producers of natural soda ash in the world, serving a global market from its facility in the Green River Basin of Wyoming. The facility has been in operation for more than 50 years.
