FYI – BP Update, but looks like Dow J may have screwed title of this one up = title reads Whiting Refinery but part article talks also about Texas City without topic change? Havent seen anything in news (or Bloomberg Refinery Schedule) on recent BP Whiting T/A or S/D for maintenance work? But lot details do match BP Tx City case.
 
BP Tx City (465 MBD) returned crude unit service in March that had been down since 2005 & was returning Alky unit service April 14-28, all units by June 2008.  Think last coker started up with crude unit – did have to run coker B at reduced rates when FCC’s ESP tripped out 4/25 <take 2 wks for repair now>.
 
BP Whiting (405 MBD) – nothing has really happened recently <other than news BP purchased its power plant from partner NiSource (NG Gasification plant) & NIPSCO was blocked out of bid due BP ‘first rights” on purchase.>
