    NEW YORK, Jan 8 (Reuters) – Operations at Frontier Oil Corp.’s Cheyenne, Wyoming, refinery were not affected by a small fire at the plant’s coker unit on Jan. 5, a company spokesman said Monday.
    “There is no change to our volumetric plans,” said Frontier spokesman Doug Aron.
    One employee at the 52,000-barrels-per-day refinery was treated for minor injuries and has now returned to work, Aron said.
    Frontier has two modernization projects valued at over $86 million underway at the Cheyenne site. A 4,500-barrels-per-day expansion of the refinery’s delayed coker is slated for completion in the third quarter. An overhaul of the refinery’s crude unit is also underway which should be completed in the second quarter.
