HOUSTON (ICIS)--Two of Valero’s refineries in Texas are scheduled for turnarounds in October, the US energy company said on Tuesday.

Valero spokesman Bill Day said there would be a three-week turnaround at the crude and coker units of its 315,000 bbl/day Corpus Christi refinery.

The refinery has two crude units, with the largest at 110,000 bbl/day capacity, according to information released in 2009.

The 97,000 bbl/day Three Rivers refinery will undergo a six-week turnaround at its crude and fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) units beginning in October.

The refinery has one 95,000 bbl/day crude unit.
