Bloomberg: Shell Says Contract Worker Killed at Port Arthur Refinery

By Tom Cahill

Aug. 10 (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc said a contract worker was killed yesterday while working at a refinery in Port Arthur, Texas, operated by Motiva Enterprises LLC, a Shell and Saudi Aramco venture.

“At around 9 a.m. on Aug. 9, an employee of Standard Contractors Inc. was involved in a fatal accident,” said Sarah Smallhorn, a spokeswoman for Shell in London.

The employee, identified as Emery Bowie, 25, in a Houston Chronicle story, was working on the Alligator Bayou Project, Smallhorn said.

Motiva is owned equally by Shell, Europe’s largest oil company, and Saudi Arabia’s state-oil company, Saudi Aramco. Motiva operates three refineries in the U.S. and is considering a $3 billion expansion at the Port Arthur facility that would make it the biggest U.S. refinery.
