Valero CEO says U.S. energy secretary told shuttered refineries won't restart

HOUSTON, Oct 25 (Reuters) - Valero Chief Executive Joe Gorder said on Tuesday U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm was told at a recent White House meeting with energy executives that refineries shuttered in the last few years won’t return production.

“The one interesting thing that came out of it, too, was there was consideration for the ability to restart refining capacity that had been shut down,” Gorder said. “And I think the general sentiment was that wasn’t going to happen.” (Reporting by Erwin Seba; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
