CVR Coffeyville Said to Restart Catalytic Cracker After Repairs

CVR Energy Inc. restarted the catalytic cracker at a refinery in Coffeyville, Kansas, after shutting it last week for unplanned maintenance, a person familiar with the work said.

The cracker was idled for repairs Feb. 5, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public.

Angela Dasbach, a spokeswoman for Sugar Land, Texas-based CVR, did not immediately respond today to an e-mail requesting comment.

The Coffeyville plant can process 120,000 barrels of crude a day and has 36,000-barrels-a-day of catalytic cracking capacity, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
