    2008-04-30 14:56 (New York)

    By Robert Tuttle
         April 30 (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Europe’s
    largest oil company, said a hydrocracker at Motiva Enterprises
    LLC’s Norco, Louisiana, refinery will be shut for about a month
    of repairs beginning in May.
         The shutdown is scheduled to start at the end of May, Robin
    Lebovitz, Shell spokeswoman, said in a telephone interview.
         The hydrocracker, which converts heavy hydrocarbons into
    lighter fuels such as high-octane gasoline, is the only such
    unit at the 250,000 barrel-a-day refinery.
         Motiva is owned by Shell and Saudi Arabian Oil Co.
