HOUSTON, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Shell Oil Products US and Motiva Enterprises LLC are pleased to report that all 400 Shell stations in Houston and the surrounding areas are open and have been refueled in record time thanks to valiant efforts by the companies' tanker drivers, retailers, wholesalers and employees. Together they worked around-the-clock to deliver 1,000 tanker loads totaling 9 million gallons of gasoline in an effort to ensure their communities were re-supplied quickly, safely and efficiently.
"Our employees, our drivers and our retailers and wholesalers have worked diligently to resupply Houston for families, friends, fellow residents and emergency responders," said David Sexton, President of Shell Oil Products US. "We have witnessed an incredible spirit of partnership and support, and tremendous credit and thanks go to these independent businesspeople as well as local law enforcement for their role in this monumentous task."
While the fuel supply in Houston improves every day, it is important to remember that the country and the industry continue to recover from two major hurricanes that have impacted the nation's fuel supply. We continue to repair and re-start facilities in Deer Park, Port Arthur, New Orleans and other areas impacted by Hurricane Rita and Hurricane Katrina. We are also carefully managing available supply so that we can continue to provide fuel to consumers across the country. However, until pipelines and refineries come back on line, fuel conservation is a necessity. Motiva and Shell hope you'll join the companies and their employees in support of local, state and national officials who have requested that consumers conserve fuel and avoid unnecessary driving.
