Shell restarting Geismar chemical facility in Louisiana

Sept 13 (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDS/A) on Monday said its Geismar chemical facility in Louisiana is restarting, two weeks after Hurricane Ida forced it shut.

"The site continues to experience utility and feedstock constraints but has resumed loading capabilities and shipping product," the company said in a statement.

The Norco to Kenner pipeline, which carries gasoline, diesel and jet fuel to the Shell terminal at the Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans, has also been returned to service.

Shell's Appomattox, Enchilada/Salsa, and Auger platforms continue to ramp up production, while its Mars, Ursa, and Olympus assets remain shut in, the company said.

Meanwhile, damage assessments continued at the Shell Pipeline-operated West Delta-143 offshore facility. (Reporting by Eileen Soreng in Bengaluru; Editing by Devika Syamnath)
