BP Restarting Texas City Ultraformer
November 17, 2008

BP is restarting its No. 3 ultraformer at its refinery in Texas City, Texas, after it was shut down due to Hurricane Rita in 2005, a filing with the state environmental agency showed on Monday.

The start-up process began on Monday and will last until Dec 3.

"This is the last unit to be brought up after the major refurbishment that the refinery underwent after the passing of Hurricane Rita," said a source familiar with refinery operations.

BP's chief financial officer said last month its 467,000 barrel per day refinery in Texas City would be back at "full economic contribution" by the end of the year, with the return to service of Ultraformer No. 3.

The refinery, which also shut down ahead of Hurricane Ike this year, already had restarted the second residual hydrotreater.
