    Under the new Cuban administration, the nationalized Shell refinery in Havana was active Oct 3, as tankers - strictly checked by armed militiamen - arrived to take on supplies of oil.

    Premier Castro confiscated the Shell and Esso Standard Oil refineries July 1 after the British and American companies had refused to refine Russian crude oil. An earlier victim of the big oil take-over was the Texaco Company's refinery.
