NEW YORK, Sept 25 (Reuters) – Shell Oil Co (RDSa.L: Quote, Profile, Research) said Tuesday it was still bringing its joint venture refinery in Port Arthur, Texas, back up to full rates after it lost power on Sept. 13 due to Hurricane Humberto.

“We are progressing according to schedule,” said Sue Parsley, a spokeswoman for the 285,000 barrel per day refinery.

Shell has said that it and Saudi Refining, its joint venture partner, plan to increase the Motiva Enterprises refinery’s capacity to 600,000 bpd.
