An even greater level of interest is in how many of the large planned projects will be approved and move forward during the first quarter of 2010. Of the estimated $609 million in CPI projects planned to begin construction during the first quarter, the top 10 projects represent about 66% of the total, including a project by Air Products and Chemicals Incorporated (NYSE:APD) to develop a grassroot hydrogen plant for the regional market and neighboring refinery owned by Marathon Petroleum Company LLC (NYSE:MRO).
