Motiva to Mothball FCC at Convent LA Refinery by 2016

Motiva Convent LA


Rumor has it that Motiva Enterprises plans to close the FCCU at its Convent LA refinery by the fall of 2016. Currently, the refinery’s crude units do not produce enough feedstock and the high cost of purchasing additional feedstock deems the catalytic cracker unprofitable to operate.  Without the FCCU, the Convent refinery will focus on making diesel.

There has been no official comment from Motiva.
