HOUSTON (ICIS)--US-based refiner Sunoco is indefinitely idling the main processing units of its refinery in Marcus Hook in Pennsylvania, because of weakening conditions in the fuel market, the company said on Thursday.

Sunoco now expects to begin idling the entire refinery immediately while it looks for buyers, the company said. Sunoco may also consider other uses for the facility with third parties.
