(ISSUED at 12:00 PM CST) Shell Conducting Damage Assessments at Louisiana Sites

With Hurricane Ida passing through the area Sunday night, Shell initiated, on Monday morning (August 30), damage assessments at its Louisiana Manufacturing sites. 

  • Our Norco manufacturing site was shut down in anticipation of storm conditions. The site did lose power and there is evidence of some building damage. We will commence a site start up when safe to do so.
  • The Convent site reports no issues at this point.
  • The Geismar site was shut down proactively with only essential personnel at the site. The site did not lose power. Damage and operating unit assessments are still underway.

At this time, we cannot confirm a schedule for when Norco and Geismar will resume full operations and production.

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