Mississippi River - Update #3
May 17, 2011
The Shell and Motiva facilities continue to operate in Louisiana.
We have received some impacts to dock facilities due to the high Mississippi River levels. However, we continue coordinating efforts to limit the effects this may have on supplying our customers and are moving products by rail and truck as our logistics assets and the railroad’s schedules allow.
Plant personnel are implementing designated weather response plans. We will continue to monitor the situation and Corps of Engineers’ forecasts. Our focus remains on safely operating the plants and docks, and reducing the potential impact to our customers.
Due to competitive reasons, it is our policy not to provide details on the operational status of individual units or information on supply.
