HOUSTON (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSa.L) plans to restart the hydrocracking unit (HCU) at its 225,300 barrel-per-day (bpd) Norco, Louisiana, refinery on Thursday after repairing a valve, said sources familiar with plant operations.

The 40,000 bpd hydrocracker was shut early on Thursday by a valve malfunction in the first stage of the unit, the sources said.
