Shell slashes gas intake at Dutch, German refineries

(Reuters) - Shell has slashed its use of gas at Europe's largest oil refinery, Rotterdam's 404,000 barrel per day Pernis site, by 40% and at its German refineries by 70% in light of the continent's natural gas crunch, CEO Ben van Beurden said on Thursday.

Gas is an important feedstock for refining crude oil into products such as gasoline, jet fuel or diesel.
