Shell Chemical shuts or reduces run rates at operations in Louisiana

30-Aug-12
Shell Chemical's operations in Louisiana remained shut or running at reduced rates on Wednesday as Isaac moved across the southeastern part of the state, as per Platts. Shell shut its Geismar plant, which produces alpha olefins as well as ethylene glycols, ahead of the storm earlier this week. The company has continued to operate its petrochemical complex in Norco, St. Charles Parish, at reduced rates. The complex is anchored by two steam crackers with a combined ethylene production exceeding 950,000 tpa. Propylene and butadiene are also produced at the facility. Shell also said its Motiva refinery in Convent was shut ahead of the storm, while those in Norco as well as Mobile, Alabama, were operating at reduced rates.
