Phillips 66 Bayway Plant Maintenance Said to Be Behind Schedule

Nov. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Phillips 66’s Bayway refinery in New Jersey is behind schedule on a maintenance project, said a person familiar with operations.

The 238,000-barrel-a-day plant will take an extra two or three weeks to complete work that began in October, said the person said, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public.

The turnaround was expected to last 40 days and include work on the fuel-gas, isomerization and catalytic cracking units, another person said last year, also asking not to be identified because the information isn’t public.

Rich Johnson, a spokesman at Phillips 66’s headquarters in Houston, said maintenance was under way at Bayway. He didn’t comment on when the work might be finished.

Catalytic crackers upgrade oil feedstock to produce higher-value, lighter products such as gasoline. Isomerization units make unleaded gasoline components to improve the octane level of the fuel.
