Valero Said to Plan October Work at Texas Three Rivers Refinery

Valero Energy Corp.’s Three Rivers refinery in Texas will shut a fluid catalytic cracker in October for planned work, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

An alkylation unit will also be shut, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public.

Bill Day, a San Antonio-based spokesman for Valero, said in an e-mail the company releases information on current and planned turnarounds each quarter. He said it’s “too early for me to speculate about something in October 2013.”

The Three Rivers refinery has a capacity of 100,000 barrels a day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
