Total restarts gasoline unit at Port Arthur refinery

March 14/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Total SA has restarted the gasoline-producing unit and shut the gasoline hydrotreater at its 225,500 barrel per day (bpd) Port Arthur, Texas, refinery, reported Reuters with reference to sources familiar with plant operations.

The 76,000 bpd gasoline-producing fluidic catalytic cracking unit (FCCU) was shut on Thursday for repairs, originally expected to take five days to complete.

The 50,000 bpd gasoline hydrotreater is being upgraded during the shutdown, the sources said.

As MRC wrote previously, in December 2017, Total inaugurated the new units at its Antwerp integrated refining & petrochemicals platform, which had progressively started up in the previous few months.

Total S.A. is a French multinational oil and gas company and one of the six "Supermajor" oil companies in the world with business in Europe, the United States, the Middle East and Asia. The company's petrochemical products cover two main groups: base chemicals and the consumer polymers (polyethylene, polypropylene and polystyrene) that are derived from them.
