Valero to shut Paulsboro FCCU until early 2010

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Nov. 13
-- Unscheduled maintenance on the scrubber at the Valero Energy Corp.’s Paulsboro, NJ, refinery’s 55,000-b/d fluid catalytic cracking unit will force its shut down later this month, according to a company news release. The unit will remain down until the maintenance is completed, estimated at mid-January.

During the FCCU shutdown, Valero will also bring down the remainder of the refinery for maintenance, it said. The entire plant will be shut down for about 3 weeks during the longer FCC outage.

Valero said staffing at the plant will not be affected, and production units will be restored to service once the maintenance is complete. Nor will the outage affect a previously scheduled turnaround at the company’s Delaware City refinery.
