Shell Plans to Consolidate Refining Portfolio to Six Sites

Reuters, October 29, 2020

Royal Dutch Shell plans to shrink its refining and chemicals portfolio from fourteen to six sites including its Deer Park, Norco, Pernis, Pulau Bukom, Rheinland and Scotford sites, it said on Thursday without giving a precise timeframe.

The refining portfolio is expected to be transformed during the energy transition ... into six high-value energy and chemical parks integrated with Chemicals,” Shell said.

This is expected to be followed by further evaluation and decisions on assets that could result in the recognition of significant provisions and charges to earnings, some as early as in the fourth quarter 2020.”
