 HOUSTON, July 11 (Reuters) - Alon USA Energy (ALJ.N) said
there was no impact on production from upsets over the weekend
on a sulfur unit at its Bakersfield, California refinery.
 "Other than a couple of trips on the sulfur unit,
everything ran perfectly fine for us in Bakersfield over the
weekend," Chief Operating Officer Joseph Israel said.
 "We are now converting gasoil into CARB diesel and CARBOB
gasoline for the California/Bakersfield market in our
Bakersfield refinery."
 Alon operates a 14,500-barrels-per-day (bpd) hydrocracker
and an 8,000-bpd reformer at the Bakersfield plant, which makes
completed motor fuels that meet strict environmental standards
set by the California Air Resources Board.
