HOUSTON (ICIS)--Delek’s 60,000 bbl/day Tyler refinery in Texas will run at a reduced capacity through the end of May following repairs on its fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCC), a company spokesman said on Wednesday.

The FCC unit at the refinery was temporarily idled on 10 May for repairs after an unsuccessful restart that resulted from a power interruption on 7 May.

According to Assi Ginzburg, Delek’s executive vice president, as a result of the maintenance, the refinery’s May crude oil throughput will average 45,000-50,000 bbl/day.

He said the refinery will resume normal operations by the end of May.
