HOUSTON, April 26 (Reuters) - Leading independent U.S. refiner Valero Energy Corp (VLO.N) has no refinery overhauls scheduled for the third quarter of 2011, said company spokesman Bill Day on Tuesday.
“We have no turnarounds planned for the third quarter,” Day said.
Valero released first quarter earnings Tuesday morning and routinely announces upcoming refinery overhauls scheduled for two quarters. Valero does most refinery maintenance in the first and second quarters of each year so its plants are ready for the high demand of the summer driving season.
