7TH UPDATE: ISAAC: US Gulf Coast Refinery Status
September 4, 2012

As of 2 p.m Central Daylight Time (CDT) Tuesday, only one refinery in Isaac's path – Phillips 66's Alliance Refinery in Belle Chasse, La. -- remained shut down. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Alliance's 247,000-barrels-per-day processing capacity represents three percent of total Gulf Coast capacity.

Phillips 66 reported that power was restored early Tuesday morning at the refinery and that personnel are in the process of bringing the facility back online. The company expects the refinery to again run at normal rates in approximately two weeks.

On Tuesday afternoon, DOE reported that five refineries with a total capacity of 923,000 b/d were in re-start mode. Also, it stated that four refineries with 980,000 b/d of capacity were running at reduced rates. DOE also reported that runs were back to normal at one refinery -- ExxonMobil's 502,500-b/d facility in Baton Rouge. However, a Dow Jones report states that Marathon Petroleum's refinery at Garyville, La., is also running at normal rates.
