Shell Deer Park Plant Work to Draw 1,100 Contractors


By Paul Burkhardt and Kaipin Yee

Sept. 28 (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc will employ about 1,100 contractors at its Deer Park, Texas, plant, as it begins a planned shutdown of an olefins unit at its chemical plant.

“The number of contract workers at Shell will peak at approximately 1,100 workers in late September and will decline as the projects are completed in mid-November,” the company said in a statement, explaining that the activity at Deer Park will snarl local traffic.

Shell announced the shutdown of a light/heavy olefins unit in a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

In a separate filing on Sept. 27, the company said it would shut an alkylation unit for work.

The Deer Park refinery can process 340,000 barrels a day, according to the company’s Web site.
