HOUSTON (ICIS)--Shell and its Motiva joint venture lowered operating rates at four US Gulf coast refineries because of Tropical Storm Isaac, the company said on Monday.

Rates were lowered at the Louisiana refineries at Norco, Convent and Geismar, and at Mobile, Alabama, the companies said.

The companies did not specify the rates.

Motiva is a joint venture made up of Shell and Saudi Aramco.

Tropical Storm Isaac was expected to make landfall near the Mississippi river by Wednesday as a hurricane.
