Houston Abounds With Refinery, Petchem Projects Despite Weakened Economy, an Industrial News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2015) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- A newly released survey indicates the economy in Houston, Texas has weakened for the 10th month in a row. With its massive array of refineries, terminals and petrochemical plants, the U.S. energy hub has been hard hit by the downfall of oil and gas prices. Still, Houston and the surrounding Harris County are home to 364 active projects being tracked by Industrial Info, with a combined worth of $31.66 billion. Significantly, construction is already under way on nearly two-thirds of those projects, with a combined value of $10.4 billion.
