It could have something to do with the fact that the United Steelworkers contract with the oil industry expires the end of this month. The union had planned to go after the oil companies hard for substantial wage and benefit increases from an industry that raked in huge profits over the last few years. Shutting down or leaving down FCC units at this time will have the effect of sending a message to the union. Just try and strike us. We wouldn’t mind some shutdowns while the margins are in the dumper.
