API Hurricane Update September 26, 2005

Source: API 9/26/2005, Location: North America

As of this morning, 23.4 percent of the nation’s refinery capacity was off-line. Another 3 percent of U.S. capacity was operating under reduced runs. Most of the refineries in the hurricane’s path were still assessing their facilities for possible damage to determine when they can be brought back on line.
The following refineries were reported as shut down, with no information yet as to when they might restart, or on the extent of damage incurred, if any: Valero (Texas City), Astra (Pasadena), Valero (Houston), Lyondell-Citgo (Houston), Calcasieu (Lake Charles) and Total Petrochemical (Port Arthur).
Refineries reporting having no power are Motiva in Port Arthur and ExxonMobil in Beaumont.
The ExxonMobil refinery in Baytown, the ConocoPhillips refinery in Sweeney and the Marathon Petroleum refinery in Texas City were asking employees to report to work to start up the facilities.
The Shell refinery in Deer Park suffered no significant damage and expects to be running by Wednesday or Thursday.
The Valero refinery in Port Arthur reports flooding and a lack of electricity, and it expects to be running in two to four weeks.
Refineries reporting no significant damage but offering no estimate on when they might restart are the BP Texas City facility and the Citgo Lake Charles plant.
The Citgo Corpus Christi refinery is running at normal operations while the Flint Hills Resources and the Valero facilities were returning to normal operations but running at reduced capacities. The Valero Three Rivers (near San Antonio) refinery is operating at slightly reduced runs and returning to normal operations.
There are still 4 Katrina refineries down, representing a little more than 5 percent of U.S. refining capacity (ConocoPhillips-Belle Chasse; ExxonMobil-Chalmette; Murphy Oil-Meraux; and Chevron-Pascagoula).

Production:
By Monday (September 26), the combined shut-ins associated with Hurricanes Katrina and Rita were: 100 percent of oil production from the Gulf (1.53 million barrels per day) and 78.4 percent of daily natural gas production (7.84 billion cubic feet per day).
