BP Restarts FCCU At Texas City - Filing
September 23, 2008

A key gasoline-making unit at BP's (BP) Texas City, Texas, oil refinery began the process of restarting on Tuesday, a report filed with state environmental regulators said.

The restart of the No. 1 Fluid Catalytic Cracking Unit, FCCU, follows the sequential restart of the plant's two working crude oil processing units, a residual hydrotreating unit and alkylation unit over the weekend, previous filings to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said.

A second FCCU at the Texas City refinery was taken off line in early September for eight weeks of scheduled maintenance which included work on Pipestill, or crude unit, No. 3A. Pipestill No. 3A was restarted on Saturday.

BP's Texas City refinery is able to process more that 400,000-barrels-a-day of crude oil a day.
