Released: February 6, 2019

Shell recently announced a $100,000 contribution to River Parishes Community College to assist in the development and construction of a one-of-a kind, full-scale process equipment trainer, known as PET, for students in the River Region. Allen Pertuit, Shell Convent Refinery General Manager, and Rhoman Hardy, Shell Vice President of Gulf Coast Manufacturing Operations, were on hand to affirm Shell’s commitment to the college’s PET project. The Shell leaders made the announcement during a recent visit by leadership from the Louisiana Community and Technical College System and RPCC to Shell’s Convent Refinery in St. James Parish.

Attending from second to left are Rhoman Hardy, Shell Vice President of Gulf Coast Manufacturing Operations; Allen Pertuit, Shell Convent Refinery General Manager; and Monty Sullivan, Louisiana Community and Technical College System President.

Shell’s donation will be used to facilitate the civil work, including construction management of the foundation, for this extraordinary training unit that is strategically located at RPCC’s campus in Gonzales near three large world-scale Shell Manufacturing facilities in the River Region. Working to construct the Gulf Coast’s premiere industrial training facility, RPCC is building the full-size, fully functional glycol distillation tower designed specifically to train process technicians and other industrial maintenance and craft specialists.

The facility will give students a training experience in an outdoor industrial setting, unique for a community college, and reflects industrial operations throughout the region.
