Bloomberg: Shell Has Flange Gasket Fail at Deer Park Refinery, Texas Says

By Robert Tuttle

June 28 (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Europe’s largest oil company, had a flange gasket fail at its Deer Park, Texas, refinery yesterday, according to a report on a state- administered regulatory Web site.

The gasket “blew out” while a transfer line was being flushed out, causing alkylate to spill , the report said.

The refinery, located near Houston, can process 340,000 barrels of crude oil a day. Dave McKinney, a Shell spokesman, didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
