Shell details its layoff of hundreds at Convent site in 2021; full shutdown set for August

Shell plans to begin layoffs for nearly 700 workers in March at its Convent oil refinery, which it expects to fully shut down in August.

The Louisiana subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell, Equilon Enterprises LLC, previously had announced layoffs but has now filed an official notice with the Louisiana Workforce Commission outlining its plans. 

Shell looks to lay off all 698 workers at the refinery, 340 of whom are represented by a union, according to the letter.

The company is still offering a voluntary severance program for some workers at its Norco refinery near New Orleans, opening the possibility of placing some workers there and at a chemical plant in Geismar that it operates. The Norco plant is unionized; the Geismar plant is not. To make room for some of the laid-off workers, early retirement and buyouts would be key.
