    2008-04-01 10:00 (New York)

    By Barbara Powell
         April 1 (Bloomberg) — Valero Energy Corp., the largest
    U.S. oil refiner, said an alkylation unit is shut after a fire
    yesterday in an electrical substation at its Houston refinery.

         A gas compressor also shut after the fire. Valero spokesman
    Bill Day said Valero expects “no impact to production.”
         The refinery can process 85,000 barrels of crude oil a day,
    according to the U.S. Energy Department.
