    BP Restarts Coker Units at Ohio and Indiana Refineries After Repair

    By Robert Tuttle
         Nov. 17, 2008 (Bloomberg)
    BP Plc, Europe’s second-largest oil
    company by market value, restored units to operation at
    refineries in Ohio and Indiana after maintenance was completed
    , a
    person familiar with the plants’ operations said.
         A crude unit, coker unit and alkylation unit resumed
    operation at BP’s Toledo, Ohio
    , plant last week after being shut
    in September, said the person, who declined to be named. A coker
    unit resumed operation last weekend at the company’s Whiting,
    Indiana, refinery,
    the person said.
         The two plants, BP’s only refineries in the U.S. Midwest,
    have a combined capacity to process 580,000 barrels of oil a day,
    U.S. Energy Department data show.
         The restarts happen as the price of conventional gasoline
    has been weakening in the Midwest market. The fuel traded at a 1
    cent discount to New York Mercantile Exchange futures on Nov. 14,
    according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
