Shell Norco, Louisiana, refinery shuts coker for work -sources

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s (RDSa.L) 225,300-barrel-per-day (bpd) Norco, Louisiana, refinery shut the coker on Monday for planned maintenance on the unit’s furnaces, sources familiar with plant operations said on Monday.

Shell reduced production last week on the 25,000-bpd coker to clean out carbon that had built up in the unit’s furnaces, the sources said. Initially, the company planned to keep the coker at reduced production for the work, but decided on Monday to shut it down.
