Shell says Deer Park, Texas refinery may be shut for a week

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell Plc said its Deer Park, Texas, refinery and chemical plant complex may be shut for up to a week because of Tropical Storm Harvey’s impact on the Houston area.

Shell spokesman Curtis Smith said following a controlled shutdown of the complex including the 325,700 barrel per day (bpd) refinery on Sunday, only essential personnel would remain at the plant through the end of the week.
