Refinery Divestment Update from Shell Deer Park
Friends & Neighbors of Shell Deer Park,
Shell announced its plan to sell its interest in the Deer Park Refinery to its joint venture partner, Pemex, pending regulatory approvals.
You may hear that we shared an update with our staff that we continue to work through the regulatory process for the deal and that we are adjusting our target date for closing to allow more time for this review. As activities around the sale continue, we will keep you informed of any relevant updates. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or comments regarding this transition.
A key priority for both Shell and Pemex is to ensure a safe and responsible handover of operations for the refinery, with respect for our employees and the Deer Park community in which we operate, as well as our neighbors in Pasadena and La Porte.
