Sasol has announced that workers have begun to return to its $11 billion Chemicals Project in Louisiana after the site was shutdown for more than a week due to Hurricane Harvey. 

Construction workers came back “albeit at lower-than-usual turnout levels” following the August 26 closure according to Russell Johnson, a spokesman for Sasol’s North American operations.

“The site could not be accessed for safe work for seven work days,” he added.

The company has said it’s working with a venture of Fluor Corp. and TechnipFMC Plc, contracted by Sasol, “to assess further workforce and material supply impacts” to the Lake Charles Chemicals Project as a result of Hurricane Harvey.
