HOUSTON (ICIS)--US refiner Chevron has successfully restarted the fire-damaged crude unit at its Richmond refinery in California, a company executive said on Friday.

The restart phase began in late April and was complete at the end of the second quarter. It is currently running at planned rates, said Pat Yarrington, Chevron’s vice president and CFO, during the company’s Q2 earnings call.

The No 4 crude unit was shut down following a fire at the 240,000 bbl/day refinery on 6 August 2012 that injured six people and caused more than 15,000 area residents to seek medical treatment.
