Holly El Dorado Said to Finish Turnaround on Crude Unit, Coker

HollyFrontier Corp. (HFC) finished a turnaround today that included work on a crude unit, coker and gofiner at its 135,000-barrel-a-day refinery in El Dorado, Kansas, according to a person familiar with operations at the plant.

The work began March 24, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public.

HollyFrontier Chief Operating Officer David Lamp said during a Feb. 26 conference call that the company expected to begin a turnaround on the units in the third week of March.

Julia Heidenreich, a Holly spokeswoman in Dallas, did not immediately respond to an e-mail requesting comment on the work.

The El Dorado refinery can process a variety of crudes and has direct access to oil from the Cushing, Oklahoma, storage hub that is the delivery point for oil futures contracts traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
