(ISSUED at 4:00 PM CST) Shell Starts Facilities Shutdown as Hurricane Ida Approaches

Shell has initiated a safe and orderly shutdown of its manufacturing facilities in Geismar and Norco, Louisiana in anticipation of Hurricane Ida. Both locations will maintain essential personnel on site to ensure around-the-clock safety and security as well as to provide assessments of the storm’s impact and to support a safe restart. At this time, we cannot confirm a schedule for when we would resume full operations and production.

Our number-one priority continues to be the protection of people and assets, the community and the environment.
