 NEW YORK, May 5 (Reuters) - Western Refining Inc (WNR.N)
said Thursday that it planned a full turnaround at its 40,000
barrel-per-day Gallup, New Mexico, refinery in the third
quarter.
 For 2012, Western Refining has no maintenance planned for
either the Gallup or El Paso refineries, company officials said
during a quarterly earnings call.
 Refinery outages hurt Western's first-quarter profit, which
was about 50 percent below market estimates. [ID:nL3E7G523J]
 Western will complete planned maintenance on a reformer at
Gallup by mid-May.
 Western is regenerating the catalyst used in the reformer,
a unit that uses naphtha as a feedstock to produce gasoline and
hydrogen. The hydrogen is used in other processes in the
refinery.
