Tesoro Golden Eagle Refinery Boiler Said Shut Until Next Week

Jan. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Tesoro Corp.’s Golden Eagle oil refinery in Northern California will keep a boiler shut until next week for planned repairs, according to two people with knowledge of the schedule.

The No. 6 boiler, which produces steam for equipment at the refinery, is expected to remain out of service for work until the first week of February, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public. The shutdown, which is limiting the plant’s steam supply, occurred around Jan. 18, one of the people said.

Tina Barbee, a spokeswoman at Tesoro’s headquarters in San Antonio, declined by e-mail yesterday to comment on the work.

The Golden Eagle refinery can process 170,000 barrels of feedstock a day, data compiled by Bloomberg show. The plant refines crude oils from Alaska, California and foreign sources, according to Tesoro’s website.

The refinery is producing some steam using a temporary boiler during the outage, one person said. The plant returned a hydrocracker, hydrotreater, reformer and alkylation unit earlier this month after repairs, a person with direct knowledge of operations there said Jan. 17.
