Refinery CDUs back to normal operations

Motiva Enterprises returned two crude distillation units (CDUs) back to normal operations at its 607,000 barrel per day (bpd) Port Arthur, Texas, refinery, the nation’s largest. 

Motiva restarted the 80,000 bpd VPS-2 CDU on Sunday and restored production to full on the 195,000 bpd VPS-4 CDU on Saturday after clearing water from the fuel gas lines supplying the units, the sources said.

In an unsigned statement, Motiva declined comment.
