As researched by Industrial Info Sources, LyondellBasell Industries, a public multinational chemical company based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, has announced two substantial upgrades for the 2Q16. The first is to repair its fire stricken refinery in Houston, Texas, which burst into flames in early April 2016 after a fire started in the coking unit.

The second outlined task is to concentrate on a turnaround and expansion at its Corpus Christi, Texas ethylene facility, according to Chief Executive Officer Bob Patel.

Industrial Info is currently tracking 93 active LyondellBasell projects estimated to be worth US$3.59 billion.
