HOUSTON, September 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Catastrophic flooding from Hurricane Harvey has had a substantial impact on petrochemical production along the US Gulf, and the ramifications are being felt globally.
ICIS has comprehensive coverage of this historic event and its implications on the Americas and global chemical markets.
The effects of the flood go well beyond existing plants. Companies were scheduled to compete several new plants in the upcoming months. Hurricane Harvey could now delay the start-up of these new plants as well as the construction of other petrochemical projects planned further out.
Find out the latest on the outages via an interactive map from ICIS illustrating production losses and force majeure declarations in the region. Access the map through our Harvey landing page at ICIS.com
