HOUSTON (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s Norco, Louisiana, refinery is operating at about 80% of its 225,300 barrel-per-day (bpd) capacity, said sources familiar with plant operations.
A Shell spokesman declined to comment.
The Norco refinery cut production in April, the sources said. Shell’s 211,270 bpd-capacity Convent, Louisiana, refinery, has as well reduced production by 100,000 bpd with the shutdown of a small crude distillation unit (CDU).
