March 25 (Bloomberg) -- HollyFrontier Corp. began planned maintenance yesterday 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 is expected to last until April 15, 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 for comment on the work.

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

The refinery has 19,000 barrels a day of coking capacity, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
