Refinery Status: Fire at HollyFrontier Tulsa Shuts Hydrotreater

DOW JONES NEWSWIRES The following table lists unplanned and planned production outages at U.S. refineries as reported by Dow Jones Newswires. The information is compiled from both official and unofficial refining sources and doesn't purport to be a comprehensive list. A diesel hydrotreater at HollyFrontier Corp's (HEP) Tulsa East refinery in Oklahoma was shut on Aug. 2 after an early morning fire. The company is in the process of assessing the damage and impact to operations. The Tulsa West facility was not affected by the fire, a spokeswoman said. Chevron Corp.'s (CVX) Richmond, Calif., refinery on Aug. 1 reported a flaring event to California state environmental regulators after a compressor failure caused a release of sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide. Its impact on operations wasn't clear. Chevron said the refinery would continue to supply product to its customers and doesn't otherwise comment on day-to-day activities. Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) on Aug. 1 said planned maintenance on several process at its Torrance, Calif., refinery had been completed. Valero Energy Corp. (VLO) on July 31 said its Benicia, Calif., refinery FCCU will be out of service until mid-August for unplanned repair to an associated compressor. BP PLC (BP, BP.LN) will shut the largest of three crude units at its Whiting, Indiana, refinery in fourth quarter 2012 as part of its $4 billion upgrade, the company's CFO said on July 31. The upgrade project is expected to be finished in the second half of 2013. Sunoco Inc. (SUN) on July 31 restarted FCCU 868 in the Point Breeze section of its Philadelphia refinery after 8 days of unplanned maintenance. It wasn't clear if Alkylation unit 869, which was shut on July 22 to repair a leak, would also restart, a person familiar with operations at the plant said. Valero Energy on July 31 said eight weeks of maintenance is planned at its Houston Refinery's FCCU in September 2012. Citgo on July 30 said the FCCU at its Lemont, Ill., refinery would return to service within the week. It was shut on July 28 for unplanned maintenance. A coker at BP's 336,000 barrel-a-day refinery in Whiting, Indiana, was still out of service on July 27; the unit was taken down July 23, during a small fire at the facility. Planned flaring through July 28 at ExxonMobil's (XOM) 151,000 barrel-a-day refinery in Torrance, Calif., signals the restart of various units, according to traders doing business with the refinery. Several units, including a coker and hydrotreater, had been under going maintenance since early June. For more detailed information, search Dow Jones Newswires using the code N/REF.
