Oil Refineries in Texas Shut Down for Hurricane Ike (Table)

By Nidaa Bakhsh and Aaron Clark
     Sept. 12, 2008 (Bloomberg)
— Texas refineries are shutting down
in preparation for Hurricane Ike, cutting fuel supply a week
after Hurricane Gustav battered Louisiana and forced several
plants to close.
     Forecasts that Ike will make landfall in Galveston late
today or early tomorrow have caused at least 13 of the 16
refineries in the region to start closing units, cutting about 19
percent of U.S. refining capacity. The 16 plants have a
processing capacity of 4.26 million barrels a day, or about 22
percent of the U.S. total, according to government data.
     The following table shows the owner, name, location,
processing capacity in barrels a day and latest information
provided by refinery operators.
