Motiva’s New York Harbor petroleum terminals shut

30 Oct 2012 20:48 GMT

Houston, 30 October (Argus) — Motiva terminals in the New York Harbor area were shut down with no restart timeline as the Shell and Saudi Aramco joint venture investigated wind and flooding damage at several facilities.

Terminals in Sewaren and Newark, New Jersey, and in Brooklyn and Long Island, New York, were shut down a day after Hurricane Sandy blew through the area. The massive storm brought flooding, high winds and blizzard conditions to parts of the northeastern US.

Motiva said it was working to restore power to terminals in New Haven and Bridgeport, Connecticut. The company's terminal in Baltimore, Maryland, reopened but at reduced operational status. Terminals in Rhode Island, and in Fairfax and Richmond, Virginia, are fully operational.
