Shell Convent Refinery
Shell Convent Refinery is located next to the Mississippi River, midway between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The refinery is designed to process approximately 240,000 barrels per day of crude oil, producing conventional petroleum products and refinery grade sulfur.
The refinery is located on a 4,400-acre tract of land that straddles Ascension and St. James Parishes in Louisiana. The processing equipment is located in St. James Parish and occupies approximately 900 acres. The refinery uses two docks along 6,000 feet of Mississippi River access.
Shell made the difficult decision to shut down the refinery in November 2020. The decision is part of the company’s global strategy to invest in a core set of uniquely integrated manufacturing sites that are also strategically positioned for the transition to a low-carbon future.
