HollyFrontier Corporation has announced that planned fourth quarter maintenance on the El Dorado and Cheyenne distillate hydrotreating units and the Tulsa West crude and lubricants units was complete.
During the quarter, the Tulsa refinery also experienced an unplanned shutdown of its fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCCU). Repairs have been completed and the FCCU has successfully restarted.
Extreme weather conditions in New Mexico have also impacted crude rate at the Navajo refinery due to crude availability constraints. As a result of the weather and both planned and unplanned maintenance, HollyFrontier Corporation expects crude oil throughput for 4Q15 to average between 395 000 and 405 000 bpd.
