Bloomberg: Shell Says Gasoline Unit Restart at Deer Park to Cause Flaring

By Trisha Huang

Feb. 4 (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Europe’s largest oil company, said its planned restart of gasoline-making units at its Deer Park, Texas refinery will cause flaring of gases including carbon monoxide.

The refiner plans to restart a catalytic cracking unit, a gasoline hydrotreater, an alkylation unit, three sulfur recovery units and a girbotol unit, it said in a filing to the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission.

The restart, to take place between Feb. 3 and March 1, will result in estimated emission of about 52,000 pounds of carbon monoxide and 1,700 pounds of sulfur dioxide, Shell said.

The Deer Park refining and petrochemical complex, which is capable of processing 340,000 barrels of oil daily, is the sixth largest refinery in the U.S., according to Shell’s Web site.
