Western Refining Expects to Restart El Paso Units

Western Refining Inc. said it plans to restart certain units of its El Paso, Texas, plant in three to five days after cold weather caused a shutdown Feb. 2.

The refinery experienced some freeze-related damage, El Paso-based Western said in a statement. The company said it is working with its customers and suppliers to address interruptions related to the event.

The statement and an accompanying e-mail from Gary Hanson, a company spokesman, didn’t specify which units were shut. The El Paso refinery has a capacity of 128,000 barrels a day, according to data complied by Bloomberg.
