NEW YORK, Sept 5 (Reuters) – Motiva Enterprises, the refining joint venture between Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSa.L:QuoteProfileResearchStock Buzz) and Saudi Aramco, has begun restarting its 240,000 barrels per day refinery in Norco, Louisiana, which was shut last week ahead of Hurricane Gustav, Shell said on its website Friday.

Shell said the Norco plant should begin to produce gasoline as early as Sunday.

Shell said Motiva’s refinery in Convent, Louisiana, was continuing to repair damaged power lines and expected to restart some units next week. (Reporting by Robert Campbell)
