Spokesman: BP’s Texas City refinery nears full capacity


Three of four major processing units at the plant have been repaired and put into operation, and a fourth, which processes sour crude oil, should be commissioned in January or February, BP spokesman Ronnie Chappell said.

That will take the refinery to about 400,000 barrels a day, he said.

BP has spent about $1 billion repairing the site of the worst accident in the gas and chemical industry in almost 15 years. At various times, up to 5,000 contract workers have been in the plant working on repairs, in contrast to about 1,600 members of the BP work force.
