HOUSTON--A gasoline production unit at Valero’s 290,078 bbl/day Port Arthur refinery in Texas is returning to planned rates, a company spokesman said on Friday.

A 78,000 bbl/day fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCC) was running at slightly reduced rates after blowers on a compressor tripped off line on 10 June, according to Valero spokesman Bill Day.

“The FCC is expected to return to planned rates today,” he said.
