May 19 (Bloomberg) — Holly Corp. said it shut down the
fluid catalytic cracking unit at its Navajo oil refinery in New
Mexico for repairs. The shutdown occurred on May 16 as the unit was being
brought back into service after an earlier closing on May 7 because of an instrument control malfunction, the Dallas-based
company said in a statement today on PR Newswire. The unit is expected to return to service about May 24 after the most-recent shutdown, which was the result of
circulation problems, the company said.
The shutdowns are expected to reduce May gasoline
production by about 13,000 to 18,000 barrels a day and diesel
output by 3,000 to 5,000 barrels a day, Holly said.
