Fire at Shell's Pulau Bukom manufacturing site
29
Sep '11
Shell is working closely with the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) to contain the fire at Pulau Bukom. Our global fire consultants are also on site to provide inputs to the team.

At around noon, we experienced a surge in the fire but which continues to be contained. The source of the fire are remnant light fuel components within the specific area where the fire originated. The smoke observed is from hydrocarbons that are not fully combusted.

Safety is our top priority. The units in the vicinity of the fire incident remain shut down as a precaution. Also as an added precautionary measure, only essential staff remains on Bukom.

Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemical companies. Our aim is to meet the energy needs of society, in ways that are economically, socially and environmentally viable, now and in the future.
