Relateret indhold


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.

In additon to the recent shutdown of a 325,000 barrel-a-day crude unit at Motiva Enterprises 600,000 barrel-a-day Port Arthur, Tx., refinery, the company will also be taking a reformer and hydrotreater out of service, according to traders and marketers doing business with the company.

Citgo's 167,000 barrel-a-day refinery in Lemont, Illinois, was affected by an instrument failure, which relased sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere the morning of June 19, according to a filing provided by the US National Response Center. No specific refining unit was mentioned in the NRC filing.

A crude unit was upset on June 19 at the 122,000 barrel-a-day refinery in El Paso, Texas, refinery owned by Western Refinng Inc, according to the Texas Comission On Environmental Quality. The unit was taken out of service for a day due to an interruption in feedstock supply and a flaring event was seen for 14 hours.

A sulfur unit tripped on June 18, at the 139,000 barrel-a-day HollyFrontier refinery in El Dorado, Kansas, according to a notice from the National Response Center. The duration of the hydrogen sulfide release was about one hour.

A power loss took place at Phillips 66, 260,000 barrel-a-day Westlake, LA., refinery on June 16, according to the National Response Center. The power outage was of short duration and an affected unit was restarted.

An emissions event took place on June 15 at Phillips 66, 105,000 barrel-a-day refinery in Ferndale, Wa., according to the National Response Center. The duration of the even was only one hour and no firm indications were forthcomng regarding the effect on any refinery units.

A planned flaring event is scheduled to take place at BP's 265,000 barrel-a-day refinery in Carson, Calif., from June 18 through June 25, according to the South Coast Air Quality Management District. No firm indication was given as to shich units will be affected.

Citgo on June 12 said planned turnaround maintenance at unspecified process units at its Lemont, Illinois, refinery had been completed. The work began at the end of April and traders doing business in the region said a crude unit was one of the units slated work.

Valero Energy Corp. (VLO) on June 12 said the leak in an LPG line leading to a hydrocracker unit at its Corpus Christi, Texas, refinery had been repaired. The leak was discovered the day before and the hydrocracker continued to operate during the work, the company said.

An FCCU at Valero's Port Arthur, Texas, refinery continues to operate at a slightly reduced rate while work continues to repair associated blowers, the company said on June 12.

The smallest of three crude distillation units at BP PLC's (BP, BP.LN) Whiting, Indiana, refinery was restarted over the weekend, a source familiar with the plant said on June 11. It was taken out of service for unplanned work around June 1.

Delek US Holdings (DK) on June 11 said a malfunction at sulfur recovery unit 1 at its Tyler, Texas, refinery caused a brief period of emissions, according to a report to environmental regulators.

Motiva Enterprises'(RDSA, RDSB) newly-commissioned 325,000-barrels-a-day crude unit at it's Port Arthur, Texas, was taken out of service over the weekend for weeks, if not months, of repairs, a source familiar with operations at the plant said on June 11. The unit was commissioned into service on May 31 and shut on June 4 to repair leaking valves, the same source said at that time.

Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) on June 9 reported planned flaring at its Torrance, Calif., refinery to Calif. state regulators. The company on June 4 said several units, including a coker, pretreater and hydrogen unit, were scheduled for several weeks of planned maintenance and that flaring could be visible between June 4 and 13.

Shell Oil Co. (RDSA, RDSB) on June 8 reported flaring and a release of sulfur dioxide at its San Francisco-area refinery in Martinez, Calif. The cause wasn't known and no other details were provided in a filing to Calif. state regulators.
