ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the struggle of chemical plants in the U.S. Gulf Coast to resume oprations after the Hurricane Katrina. Three weeks after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, several companies were still laboring to bring up production at their damaged or flooded sites. Shell says it was in the process of starting up its Norco chemical plants in Louisiana last week. Shell's crackers are located within the site of Motiva Norco Refinery, a 50-50 joint venture with Saudi Refinery. Dow Chemical says its Plaquemine, Louisiana site has resumed normal operations, but that it is still in the process of bringing up various units at its St. Charles operations at Hahnville, Louisiana back online. ExxonMobil Chemical has put its polyethylene (PE) customers on sales allocation because of reduced production of some PE grades at Baton Rouge, Louisiana but production of other chemicals at the site has returned to normal.
