Flint Hills Texas Refinery Said to Plan February Crude Unit Work

Flint Hills Resources LLC will conduct maintenance work on its West crude unit at the Corpus Christi refinery in Texas starting in February, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

The work will start Feb. 6 and is expected to last about 23 days, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public.

Planned maintenance will be conducted on a delayed coker at the refinery complex from April 23 to May 19, said the person. A fluid catalytic cracker will undergo work in October at the East section, the person said.

Katie Stavinoha, a Houston-based spokeswoman for the company, declined to comment in e-mails yesterday and today.

The Flint Hills Corpus Christi refinery has a capacity of 305,000 barrels a day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
