HOUSTON, June 18 (Reuters) - Refineries in southeast Louisiana were operating normally ahead of a possible tropical storm, said a spokeswoman for an Exxon (XOM.N) refinery and sources at Shell (RDSa.L) and PBF Energy (PBF.N) refineries on Friday.
Operations at Exxon's 502,500 barrel-per-day (bpd) Baton Rouge, Louisiana, refinery were normal, said company spokeswoman Julie King.
Shell's 227,400 barrel-per-day (bpd) Norco, Louisiana, refinery was continuing business as usual from what is expected to be a minimal tropical storm making landfall on Thursday or Friday, sources said.
PBF's 190,000-bpd Chalmette, Louisiana, does not plan a change in operations because of the storm, said sources familiar with operations at that plant.
