Delek Tyler Refinery Said to Shut Unit for October Maintenance

Delek US Holdings Inc. (DK) plans to shut an alkylation unit at the Tyler, Texas, refinery for maintenance in October, a person familiar with operations said.

The work is expected to last five to six weeks, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public.

Matt Barkett, managing director of Dix & Eaton in Cleveland and an external spokesman for Delek, didn’t immediately respond today to an e-mailed request for comment.

The Tyler refinery, which has a capacity of 60,000 barrels a day, processes mostly light, sweet crude oil, including West Texas Intermediate, according to the company’s website.
