Global Project Restarts Exceed $120 Billion for First-Quarter 2016, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 30, 2016) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Globally, Industrial Info is tracking 286 projects worth $121.77 billion that previously were canceled or placed on hold, but have returned to an active status since the beginning of the year. More than 90% of these project restarts can be found in four industries -- Power, Metals & Minerals, Oil & Gas Production and Oil & Gas Pipelines -- and include some of the most highly anticipated (and frequently delayed) projects in those areas.

More than half of the total investment value (TIV) for the restarts can be found in the Power Industry, in which $63.88 billion worth of projects have returned to active status since January 1. Most of these are related to restarts at nuclear power facilities. Nuclear projects in the U.S. have been especially slow to come to fruition, as the low price of natural gas has forced a reexamination of other energy sources.
