PBF Energy Inc. provided an update to the operations at the Delaware City refinery which had been running at reduced rates following an unplanned shutdown of its Fluid Catalytic Cracking Unit (FCC) on August 21, 2015. The FCC has successfully restarted and is operating to plan.
During the outage, the company elected to move forward the planned maintenance of its crude and reformer units. The planned maintenance is expected to be complete by the end of September.
The company provides the following updated guidance for the remainder of 2015: the East Coast is expected to process approximately 300,000 to 320,000 barrels per day (bpd) for the third quarter and 320,000 to 340,000 bpd for the fourth quarter; the Mid-Continent is expected to process approximately 165,000 to 175,000 bpd for the third quarter and 150,000 to 160,000 bpd for the fourth quarter.
