    NEW YORK, Dec 5 (Reuters) – Independent refiner Sunoco Inc. will carry out a “major” turnaround at its 330,000 barrels per day Philadelphia refinery beginning in February, trade sources said on Tuesday.
    Traders said the work would include a lengthy shutdown of the fluid catalytic cracker at the plant, which is currently undergoing a $400 million overhaul and expansion.
    “It’s a major turnaround. The catcracker is going to be down for eight weeks, we are hearing,” said one trader.
    Other units at the refinery, including one crude unit, also are expected to be shut down for maintenance.
    The catalytic cracker expansion will add 15,000 bpd of new conversion capacity at the refinery as well as allow Sunoco to use more lower-value heavy feedstocks in the unit.
