August 25, 2020 – LyondellBasell continues to actively monitor the trajectory of Hurricane Laura. Our Gulf Coast sites have taken the appropriate steps to protect our employees and assets, the community and the environment.
Our Lake Charles, Louisiana polypropylene site is currently in the storm’s projected path. In preparation for landfall, we have identified a “ride out crew” and we are moving inventory away from the site. The “ride out crew” is small group of employees that will remain on site to ensure the safety of the plant and our assets during the storm. This crew will also perform the initial plant assessment once the storm passes.
As always, our top priority is the safety of our employees, their families and the community.
