Aramco, Shell JV delays refinery maintenance shutdown

: Monday, March 10 - 2014 @ 01:35

A joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Royal Dutch Shell has rescheduled, for the second time, a planned overhaul of a 200,000-barrel-per-day crude distillation unit at its Port Arthur, Texas, refinery until 2015, Reuters has reported, citing industry sources. Motiva Enterprises also plans to shut the 90,000-bpd gasoline-producing fluidic catalytic cracking (FCC) unit at the port for a second time in 2014 to repair a leaking boiler, said the sources. The planned overhaul of the 200,000 bpd VPS-4 crude distillation unit had been originally scheduled for February, but was rescheduled late last year for autumn 2014, with a likely September start, after two reviews found fault with the refinery’s readiness to carry out a complete overhaul of a major unit.
