Shell Deer Park Maintenance To Impact Local Traffic
The number of additional contract workers at Shell will peak at approximately 500 per shift in late January, and will decline
as the projects are completed in early March.
Heaviest traffic will be occurring during shift changes from 5 - 8 a.m. and 5 - 8 p.m. daily, with reduced staffing on Sundays. Shell has arranged for Harris County sheriff’s deputies to assist with traffic control.
Because the turnarounds involve shutting down and restarting process units, there is the possibility of higher than normal flaring the third week in January and last week in February. We have put procedures in place to minimize flaring at all times.
We are sensitive to the impact our activities can have on the community and we appreciate your patience and understanding. To contact Shell Deer Park, call the Security Center at 713-246-7301 during daytime hours or send an email from our web site at www.shell.us/deerpark.
