HOUSTON (ICIS)--The central crude unit at Chevron’s Richmond refinery in California will remain shut through the end of the year, the company said on Tuesday.

The crude unit at the 245,000 bbl/day refinery was shut down on 6 August following a fire, and the site’s production of motor fuel has been reduced since then.

The fire is currently under investigation by federal and state agencies.
