Jan 22 (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell Plc emergency personnel were trying to contain a fire at its facility in Deer park, Texas, the oil company said in a message posted on a community information phone line on Wednesday.

The Deer Park facility houses a 327,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) refinery and a chemical plant and is a 50-50 joint venture between Shell and Mexican national oil company Pemex.

The fire will not affect the community, industrial neighbors or other operating units at the facility, the message from an environmental supervisor at the plant said.
