NEW YORK Nov 21 (Reuters) - Hess Corp on Wednesday said its 70,000 barrels-per-day refinery in Port Reading, New Jersey is operating at normal rates.

The refinery was shut down after Hurricane Sandy pummeled the East Coast three weeks ago and damaged a substation that powers the plant.

Hess began producing fuel at Port Reading last week.
