A hydrotreater and reformer were operating normally on Monday after being restarted late last week at Motiva Enterprises’ 607,000-barrel-per-day (bpd) Port Arthur, Texas, refinery, said sources familiar with plant operations.

Motiva declined to comment.

The 49,000-bpd Catalytic Reforming Unit 4 (CRU 4) was restarted on Friday and the 32,000-bpd Hydrotreating Unit 3 (HTU 3) was restarted on Saturday following unplanned shutdowns on Thursday, the sources said.
