HOUSTON (Reuters) - Citgo Petroleum Corp [PDVSAC.UL] restarted the large gasoline-producing fluidic catalytic cracker on Wednesday at its 167,500-barrel-per-day (bpd) Corpus Christi, Texas, refinery on Wednesday, said sources familiar with plant operations.

Citgo did not reply to a request for comment.

The 69,000-bpd FCC was knocked out of production early on Wednesday, the sources said, by a pump outage. The pump was repaired and the unit restarted.
