10.08.2013  | 

The Motiva Enterprises refinery in Norco, Louisiana, is conducting planned repairs on a fluid catalytic cracker. The 250,000 bpd Norco refinery is located about 21 km west of New Orleans.



HOUSTON (Bloomberg) -- The Motiva Enterprises refinery in Norco, Louisiana, is conducting planned repairs on a fluid catalytic cracker, a person familiar with operations said.

The unit was shut in the third week of September for 50 days of scheduled maintenance, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public.

A community notice on September 19 from St. Charles Parish, where the refinery is located, said that Motiva would begin planned maintenance on several units the week of September 28.

The 250,000 bpd Norco refinery is about 21 km west of New Orleans. Motiva is a refining and marketing joint venture of Saudi Refining, a subsidiary of Saudi Arabian Oil Co, and Shell Oil, a unit of Royal Dutch Shell.

50 days is appreciable time and is likely to have very favorable impact on the unit capabilities
