Shell contains leak at Singapore refining-petrochemical site
[SINGAPORE] Royal Dutch Shell has contained a leak at its Pulau Bukom refining and petrochemical complex in Singapore, and operations have not been affected, a company spokeswoman said on Monday.
The small leak occurred on Friday, the spokeswoman said, without revealing further details on the affected unit.
The Bukom site, Shell's largest wholly-owned plant, has a 500,000 barrels per day (bpd) refinery and a steam cracker that produces more than 900,000 tonnes of ethylene a year.
Shell also reported a leak at one of the units at the Bukom site in January this year.
It is not clear if the incidents are related.
