August 26, 2020 – Hurricane Laura is anticipated to make landfall to the east of the Texas and Louisiana border. We completed the safe shut down of our two facilities in the projected path in Lake Charles, Louisiana and China, Texas. We have a ride out crew on site at our Lake Charles facility to ensure the safety of the plant and our assets during the storm.
Two Houston-area facilities have safely shut down and include our Bayport Polymers unit in Bayport, Texas and our Chocolate Bayou Polymers site in Alvin, Texas.
Our other Houston area facilities continue to operate at this time.
We also continue to provide our employees and contractors with updates. We have asked that they continue to monitor the evolving weather conditions and follow the guidance of federal, state and local authorities.
LyondellBasell continues to monitor the weather conditions and will adjust our plans as needed. As always, our primary concern is for the safety of our workers, their families, the surrounding community and the environment.
