P66 Delaying Planned SRU Maintenance at Borger Refinery

Phillips 66 has decided to delay a planned maintenance on a sulfur recovery unit (SRU) that was scheduled for Friday at its 146,000 bpd Borger, TX refinery, a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said.

"Phillips 66 will submit a new planned maintenance emission event in conjunction for the Sneed Booster SRU shutdown and startup," the filing said.

A sulfur recovery unit extracts sulfur from hydrogen sulfide that has been removed from motor fuel feedstocks in compliance with U.S. environmental rules. An SRU outage can force a cut in production to prevent excess amounts of hydrogen sulfide in motor fuels.
