We continue to follow the progress and treatment of the two contractor workers who are in ICU. We are also continuing to work with our contractor partner to ensure all possible support and assistance are rendered to the injured contractor workers and their families.
On 21 August 2015, a fire occurred at a section of one of the units under scheduled maintenance at our Pulau Bukom Manufacturing Site. The fire was put out by the site’s first emergency responders within an hour. All other units at the Pulau Bukom Manufacturing Site continue to operate normally and there is no expected disruption to our planned production rates.
We regret that this incident has occurred. Safety is of utmost importance to Shell and we are working closely with the authorities to investigate the incident.
