Citgo says restarted Corpus Christi Alky unit Tues

HOUSTON, March 13 (Reuters) - Citgo Petroleum Corp’s 163,000 barrel per day (bpd) Corpus Christi, Texas, refinery restarted an alkylation unit in the refinery’s East Plant, a company spokesman said on Tuesday.

“The startup went smoothly and without incident,” the spokesman said in a statement.

The alkylation unit, which uses refinery byproducts to make octane-booster blendstocks for gasoline, was shut on March 5, after a steam release containing hydrofluoric acid was detected.
