    2008-05-02 10:36 (New York)

    By Jordan Burke and Robert Tuttle
         May 2 (Bloomberg) — Valero Energy Corp., the largest U.S.
    refiner, plans to shut a 40,000 barrel-a-day crude unit today at
    its Corpus Christi, Texas, refinery.
         The maintenance will also include the shutdown of a vacuum
    unit and will last 14 days
    , Bill Day, a company spokesman, said
    in a telephone interview. The crude unit is located in a section
    of the plant that “mostly” produces residual fuel and
    partially processed petroleum feedstocks.
         The maintenance may cause flaring at the plant, according
    to a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
    The refinery can process about 340,000 barrels a day, according
    to company data.
