Refinery Status: Citgo Restarts Lemont Refinery FCCU

05/22/2012 | 12:31pm US/Eastern

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.

BP Plc. (BP) reported flaring May 21 at its refinery in Texas City, Texas, amid a restart of its FCCU, according to a government filing.

BP Plc. (BP) reported flaring May 20 at its Cherry Point refinery in Blaine, Wash., amid a unit restart, a source said.

Exxon Mobil Corp. (>> Exxon Mobil Corporation) said May 20 the coker unit at its refinery in Beaumont, Texas, had returned to normal operations.

Shell Oil on May 18 said the "shelter-in-place" order was lifted shortly after a sulfur recovery unit upset on May 17 caused emissions of hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide. The sulfur recover unit was taken out of service.

Citgo Petroleum Corp. on May 17 restarted the FCCU at its Lemont, Illinois, refinery, a filing to the NRC said. It's not clear when the unit was taken out of service. Seperately, on April 29 the company said 30 day's of planned maintenance was under way, but no details were provided.

Sunoco Inc.'s (>> Sunoco, Inc.) Philadelphia refinery (Girard Point) crude unit shut by a brief fire on May 9 is expected to reach planned rate by May 19, a person familiar with the plant said on May 14.

The process of restarting BP's (BP) Cherry Point refinery in Ferndale, Wash., is expected to conclude by the end of May, a person familiar with operations at the plant said Wednesday. The plant was shut on Feb. 17 when a fire damaged the crude unit. Maintenance was performed at other unspecified units.

Valero Energy Corp. on May 16 said the alkylation unit and FCCU at its Meraux, La., refinery are in restart and will be operating at normal rates by June 1. The units had been down since January as part of planned maintenance turnaround.

Valero Energy Corp. on May 15 reported compressor problems at its Houston and Port Arthur, Texas, refineries. Neither plant experienced any material impact to production, the company said on May 16.

Delek US Holdings, Inc. (>> Delek US Holdings, Inc.) on May 15 its Tyler, Texas, refinery is expected to average between 45,000 and 50,000 barrels-a-day, down from 62,000 b/d, while repairs continue at the plant's FCCU. The unit was shut May 10 after a May 7 restart attempt failed.

Also on May 15, Delek said its El Dorado, Arkansas, refinery has been operating at reduced rates since May 1 due to the temporary suspension of crude oil deliveries from its supplier Exxon Mobil. The company has secured additional feedstocks that should allow the refinery to average total throughput of at least 60,000 barrels a day during May and June, which is down from its boiler-plate capacity of 70,000 barrels a day.
