Motiva Port Arthur refinery FCCU shut for mechanical repair

October 19/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Motiva Enterprises shut the gasoline-producing fluidic catalytic cracking unit (FCCU) at its 603,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) Port Arthur, Texas, refinery to fix a mechanical problem, reported Hydrocarbonprocessing with reference to sources familiar with plant operations.

The refinery's 18,000-bpd alkylation unit is also out of production while the FCCU repairs are underway, the sources said. There is no time frame for completion of the work.

As MRC informed before, in mid-July 2018, Motiva Enterprises completed repairs to the FCCU at its 603,000 barrel per day (bpd) Port Arthur, Texas.

Besides, later, on 27 August 2018, Motiva Enterprises returned the gasoline-producing, alkylation and small coking units to normal operation at its 603,000 bpd Port Arthur, Texas, refinery, the nations largest. The 82,000 bpd gasoline-producing fluidic catalytic cracking unit (FCCU 3) and the 18,000-bpd alkylation units were knocked out of production on 26 August by a malfunction. The units began restarting at night on the same day.

Motiva is a subsidiary of Saudi Aramco, Saudi Arabias national oil company.
