Jan. 19 (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc said there was an emissions leak from a crude distillation unit at its Deer Park, Texas, refinery.

Gases were released because of a flange leak in the No. 2 distillation unit, the company said in a filing to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Feedstocks to the plant were halted and the leak was repaired, said Shell.

The Deer Park refinery has a daily oil-processing capacity of 340,000 barrels, according to the U.S. Energy Department.
