Shell plans to hang on to Norco, Louisiana refinery -sources – Reuters

HOUSTON, June 30 (Reuters) - By the end of 2021, Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSa.L) will have just one operating crude oil refinery in the United States: The 227,400 barrel-per-day (bpd) refinery in Norco, Louisiana.

Sources familiar with Shell’s plans say the company will likely hang on to the Norco refinery because of its role supplying the company’s chemical plants.

“Norco is integrated with them,” one of the sources said of the refinery, 25 miles (40 km) west of New Orleans.
