S&P Global Platts reported that US Steel has restarted two blast furnaces at its Gary Works steel mill in Indiana and is in the process of starting up another two furnaces at the facility. US Steel spokeswoman Ms Amanda Malkowski said "After a brief outage, blast furnaces 14 and 6 are now fully operational. The third, blast furnace 4, is expected to be operational early next week."

Separately, US Steel said it is in the process of restarting the previously idled blast furnace 8 at the facility as the 4 blast furnace is scheduled for planned maintenance in early 2020. Preparations for the start up of blast furnace #8 began earlier in November and it is expected to be operational by next week,

Extensive flooding last week caused the mill to shut operation, but the company says none of the facility's blast furnaces were damaged and customers have not been affected.
