HOUSTON (Reuters) - LyondellBasell Industries may restart its 263,776-barrel-per-day (bpd) Houston refinery over the weekend after the entire plant was shut by a power outage on Wednesday, Gulf Coast market sources said on Thursday.
Lyondell spokeswoman Chevalier Gray declined to discuss operations at the refinery.
The refinery’s 120,000-bpd 536 crude distillation unit (CDU) and 56,000-bpd 737 coker will remain shut, the sources said. The units were shut on Sept. 17 for a six-week overhaul.
