Total's Port Arthur, Texas, reformer returns to normal operation - sources

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Total SA returned the reformer to normal operation at its 225,500 barrel-per-day (bpd) Port Arthur, Texas, refinery after completing repairs, Gulf Coast market sources said on Friday.

Total spokeswoman Tricia Fuller declined to comment.

The refinery’s production dipped to 72% of its 225,500-bpd capacity this week, the sources said. Production has fluctuated between 70% and 75% because of demand destruction caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The reformer has been operating at reduced production since May 4 while repairs to the heat exchanger and regenerator were underway, according to the sources.
