Phillips 66 Wood River Said to Slow Crude Units for Work

Phillips 66’s Wood River, Illinois, refinery has cut rates at two crude distillation units for planned work, a person familiar with the turnaround said.

The plant’s 120,000-barrel-a-day distillation unit is shut, while production from a 150,000-barrel-a-day unit will be cut by half for the next seven to 10 days, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public.

A third unit, which can process about 60,000 barrels of crude a day, is operating at full rates. Work will be performed on that equipment for six days in late March, the person said.

Rich Johnson, a company spokesman, declined to comment on operations in an e-mail. Johnson said Feb. 26 that planned maintenance at the refinery was under way.

Planned work was also expected on a hydrocracker from late February to late March, a diesel hydrotreater and delayed coker for six days each in March and two desulfurization units for a combined 24 days, the person said Jan. 23.

The Wood River refinery, 15 miles northeast of St. Louis, can process as much as 356,000 barrels of crude oil a day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. It’s a joint venture of Phillips and Cenovus Energy Inc.
