SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Phillips 66’s 238,000 bbl/day Bayway refinery in New Jersey is expected to resume normal operations in two or three weeks after it was shut ahead of Hurricane Sandy’s arrival late last month, the company said late on Monday.

Phillips 66 has completed post-storm assessments at the refinery and will continue to work with the US Coast Guard and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to clean up an oil spill at the site, the company said in a statement.

The company said that about 185 bbl of oil was spilled as a result of the storm surge created by the hurricane.

Meanwhile, the company’s fuel terminal in Linden, New Jersey, is expected to resume full operations by 11 November, it said.

“Phillips 66 has adequate supplies of fuel on hand and has made arrangements to ensure fuel supplies will continue to be delivered to the terminal through third-party pipelines and marine transport,” the company added.

The company reopened the Linden fuel terminal to wholesale customers on 2 November.
