THE blog will be taking a few days off this week as 'tis the season to be Merry', regardless of what you may think is our rather cynical and often-times pessimistic view of the chemicals industry.
We will come roaring back towards the end of this week by the 28th European time and the 29th in Asia to tackle more on the extent of the US shale gas advantage. In the meantime, happy festive season to all our readers as we look forward to what we hope, despite or cynicism and occasional pessimism, will be another prosperous year.
By the way, 50% of the blog (John Richardson) is in the process of relocating to Perth, Western Australia - hopefully in time to gloat about England retaining the Ashes.
