HOUSTON (ICIS news)--US refiner Delek Refining said on Wednesday that the fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) at its 58,000 bbl/day Tyler refinery in Texas will resume operation on Wednesday after a brief outage.
According to a filing with Texas state regulators, the unit was taken down on Monday to minimize opacity from a boiler stack.
“Following a brief inspection, the unit is expected to resume production today,” said Noel Ryan, Delek spokesman.
US Gulf coast (USG) cash gasoline differentials strengthened over the past few days, as trade sources indicated a small wave of refinery snags hit the region, but these were not expected to significantly impact the market.
“Apparently there were some minor refiner problems, but no big effects from it,” noted a USG-based gasoline trader.
