Tesoro Golden Eagle Refinery Unit Said Shut for Planned Repairs

Tesoro Corp. (TSO)’s Golden Eagle oil refinery in Northern California shut the alkylation unit over the weekend for about 12 days of planned repairs, a person with direct knowledge of the work said.

The refinery is performing scheduled maintenance on columns at the alkylation plant, which produces a high-octane blending component for gasoline, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public. The unit was shut Jan. 6, the person said.

Tina Barbee, a spokeswoman at Tesoro’s headquarters in San Antonio, said by e-mail that the Golden Eagle plant is “undergoing planned (unspecified) maintenance.” The work shouldn’t affect the refinery’s ability to meet supply commitments, she said.

The plant can process 170,000 barrels a day of feedstock, data compiled by Bloomberg show.
