Shell JV Deer Park Refinery Repairing Reforming Unit

Reuters, December 5, 2016

On Friday, Royal Dutch Shell Plc was repairing a catalytic reforming unit at the 285,500 barrel per day (bpd) joint-venture refinery in Deer Park, Texas, sources familiar with plant operations said. A leak was discovered on Wednesday near a valve on the 45,900 bpd Catalytic Reformer 3 at the refinery, according to a notice filed with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The length of time needed to repair the leak was not known, the sources said. The Deer Park refinery is a 50-50 joint venture between Shell and Mexico's national oil company Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX).
