Tesoro Restarting Martinez Refinery

Tesoro Corporation, March 30, 2015

Last week, Tesoro Corporation announced that the Martinez, California refinery has begun the restart process.

"We are pleased to have reached an agreement with the local union at our Martinez, California refinery and are commencing the restart process today," said Greg Goff, Chairman and CEO.  "The facility should be back to normal operating levels over the next two weeks."

The Martinez, California refinery was in the final stages of major turnaround maintenance activity when the United Steelworkers Union (USW) issued a strike notice on February 1st. The safest option at that time was to safely idle the remaining operating units and transition to operating the facility as a terminal.

Tesoro has also reached agreements with the local USW at its Carson, California and Anacortes, Washington refineries and employees at those refineries are returning to work.  The local unions at the Mandan, North Dakota and Salt Lake City, Utah refineries are expected to vote on their respective contracts over the next few days.
