Citgo crude unit remains down after fire

The crude distillation unit at Citgo Petroleum Corp.’s 167,000-b/d Lemont, Ill., refinery remains out of service following a fire in the unit late on Oct. 23.

Repair work already is under way, but there is no timetable yet for when the unit will again be operating, said Peter Colarelli, a spokesman for Citgo.

While overall processing at the refinery has been reduced, some downstream units continue to operate, Colarelli told OGJ. But identification of the working units as well the refinery’s current output remained unavailable.

Citgo operates the Lemont refinery for PDV Midwest Refining LLC.
