Equilon Enterprises, a U.S. subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell, is selling two of its refineries in the U.S.: Mobile, AL, and Puget Sound near Anacortes, WA. This process could take many months and may or may not result in a finalized transaction. Shell may elect to discontinue the marketing process for one or both assets at any time. If the marketing process does not result in a finalized sales transaction, Shell plans to continue operating the refineries.
The U.S. Gulf Coast will remain a key manufacturing hub for Shell, along with Rotterdam and Singapore. Likewise, Shell will maintain its marketing presence and continue to honor branded wholesale agreements within both the West and Gulf Coast regions.
