Total Port Arthur, Texas refinery restarts diesel hydrotreater

September 18/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Total restarted a diesel hydrotreater at its 225,500 barrel-per-day (bpd) Port Arthur, Texas, refinery on Monday, reported Reuters with reference to Gulf Coast market sources.

Total is raising the production level on the 66,000 bpd Diesel Hydrotreater 3 (DHT 3), which was shut on Aug. 20, the sources said. Total repeatedly pushed back the restart date as repairs took longer than expected.

A Total spokeswoman did not reply to a request for comment.

As MRC informed earlier, on 9 December 2018, production at Total SAs 225,500 barrel-per-day-capacity Port Arthur, Texas, refinery was cut by the outage of Sulfur Recovery Unit 3, reducing the plants ability to process acid gas. Production was cut by 40 percent of capacity in November when SRU 3 was shut.

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.
