PHILLIPS 66 WOOD RIVER SAID TO START CDU WORK NEXT MONTHKenneth Christensen
Phillips 66’s Wood River refinery in Illinois plans to shut two crude distillation units, a hydrocracker, a diesel hydrotreater and a coker for work beginning in late February, a person familiar with the turnaround schedule said.
The crude distillation units will be idled in the last week of February for 33 days, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public. The refinery will begin shutting a hydrocracker on Feb. 26 for work lasting until late March, a diesel hydrotreater on March 9 for six days and a delayed coker on March 25 for six days, the person said.
Other units will be taken down for work during the turnaround, including two desulfurization units for a combined 24 days, the person said.
Rich Johnson, a company spokesman in Houston, declined to comment on the plans in an e-mail.
The Wood River refinery, located 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 between Phillips and Cenovus Energy Inc.
