Marathons Galveston Bay, Texas reformer may restart by weekend

August 08/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Marathon Petroleum Corp may restart a reformer at its 585,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) Galveston Bay Refinery in Texas City, Texas, by the end of the week, said Reuters.

The 62,000 bpd Ultraformer 4 catalytic reformer was shut on Monday for inspection and possible repairs, the sources said.

Marathon spokesman Sid Barth declined to comment.

Reformers convert low-octane refining byproducts into high-octane reformate, which is added to gasoline.

As MRC informed earlier, Marathon Petroleum Corp. and Andeavor announced that the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 has expired in connection with the proposed transaction whereby MPC would acquire all of Andeavor's outstanding shares.
