BP (NYSE:BP) Begins Restart of Texas City Refinery Resid Hydrotreater

The process of restarting their resid hydrotreater unit train 400 by BP (NYSE:BP) at their Texas City refinery started Friday, as the company had shut it down for maintenance purposes.

Resid is heavy crude oil which is processed into lighter streams by the hydrotreater unit.

The restart began at 6 PM EDT, and should be completed by that time on October 29.

The troubled refinery is able to process up to 456,000 barrels of crude oil daily.
