Valero Starts Hydrocracker at Port Arthur, Texas, Refinery

Valero Energy Corp. (VLO) has restarted a hydrocracker at its Port Arthur refinery in Texas, Bill Day, a company spokesman, said in an e-mail.

The unit was shut March 31 so workers could fix a compressor seal leak, Day said last month.

The Port Arthur refinery has a capacity of 310,000 barrels a day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
