LONDON, Dec 3 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L: QuoteProfileResearch,Stock Buzz) has restarted a reformer at its Pernis refinery this week after a brief shutdown, trade sources said on Tuesday.

Shell shut off the gasoline making units late last week due to technical problems. The 25,000 barrels-per-day reformer should return to full operation by the end of this week, the sources said.

Shell was not available to comment.
