Citizen advisory: Planned maintenance activity at Shell Deer Park

Citizen advisory general

Deer Park citizens: Please see the message below from Shell Deer Park regarding planned maintenance activity.


We are preparing planned maintenance activity at the Shell Deer Park site and expect to flare from two of our elevated flares during this event. The first phase, which we expect to begin on Wednesday, April 18, will be larger flaring for a few days as we shut down the unit for maintenance. Once we are in the maintenance phase, lasting approximately 30 days, we expect to be flaring hydrogen. Because H2 produces water when burned and is very light, the hydrogen flame from the flares will be most visible at night.

We apologize for any inconvenience that our flaring activity might cause our neighbors and appreciate your patience with us during this time as flaring improves our overall operational stability during the maintenance window.

Our top priority remains to operate in a safe and environmentally sound manner. If you have any concerns with our operations at any time, please contact us at (713) 246-7301.
