     (New York)

    By Aaron Clark
         July 22, 2008 (Bloomberg) — Total SA, Europe’s largest oil
    refiner, said it planned maintenance at its Port Arthur refinery
    in Texas today.
         Maintenance must be performed on equipment that “handles
    the vapors from tank 926,
    ” according to a filing with state
    regulators. The equipment “will be taken out of service and
    repairs performed as quickly as possible.”
         The maintenance is planned from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. local
    time, according to the report. The plant can process about
    240,000 barrels of crude oil a day, according to U.S. Energy
    Department data.

    July 28, 2008

    HOUSTON: Total Petrochemicals USA was restarting nine units at its 232,000 barrel per day (bpd) Port Arthur, Texas, refinery on Sunday, according to a notice filed with state pollution regulators.

    The restart of units 804, 805, 810, 819, 822, 823, 824, 825 and 836 began Sunday morning and was expected to take until Thursday morning, according to a notice filed with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

    The units were shut on July 9 for reasons unstated in notices with the commission. On July 10, traders told Reuters one of the units was a reformer and all of the units were taken down because of poor refining margins.
