Shell reports unit upset, no fire, at Motiva plant

HOUSTON, Dec 21 (BestGrowthStock) – Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L: ) said
on Tuesday that there was no fire at its joint-venture Motiva
Enterprises LLC 235,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) refinery in
Convent, Louisiana, on Monday.

A Shell spokesman said a unit that helps production of
transportation fuels “experienced an upset resulting in a
flare, loud noises and odors. The situation was quickly brought
under control and the refinery is running normally.”

A report filed late Monday with the U.S. National Response
Center had said a caller reported that the refinery was on
fire. It was followed by another report that said there was
flaring due to a process upset.
