    Marathon Kentucky Refinery Unit Restarting, Genscape Says
    2008-04-15 10:45 (New York)    By Robert Tuttle
         April 15, 2008 (Bloomberg) — Marathon Oil Corp., the largest
    refiner in the Midwest, “seems to be” starting a fluid
    catalytic cracker at its Catlettsburg, Kentucky, refinery after
    a fire last week
    , according to Genscape Inc., which monitors
    power flows on transmission lines.
         “The monitors are detecting a return to the pre-accident
    level,” Genscape said in a statement released by PRNewswire.
    “This is consistent with an attempt to restart the unit.”
         Genscape uses technology to sense power flow on
    transmission lines in the U.S. and Europe and recently started
    monitoring refineries, the company said in the release.
         A Genscape spokesman wasn’t immediately available for
    further comment on the refinery’s power use.
         Marathon spokeswoman Linda Casey declined to comment on
    whether the refinery was starting the unit.
