L.A. gasoline up 6 cts on Chevron refinery work plan-traders
HOUSTON, April 9
HOUSTON, April 9 (Reuters) - Gasoline climbed 6 cents a gallon in the Los Angeles spot market on Monday as Chevron Corp planned to overhaul a coking unit later this month at its 273,000 barrel per day (bpd) Los Angeles-area refinery in El Segundo, California, traders said.
A Chevron spokesman was not immediately available to discuss refinery operations.
A coking unit increases the amount of refinable material from a barrel of oil and turns residual crude into petroleum coke, a coal substitute.
