The following table lists unplanned and planned production outages at U.S. refineries as reported by Dow Jones Newswires. The information is compiled from both official and unofficial refining sources and doesn't purport to be a comprehensive list.

BP PLC (BP, BP.LN) on June 13 shut FCCU-1 at its Texas City, Texas, refinery due to a blower failure at the associated electrostatic precipitator. There is no estimate of when it will restart. FCCU-3, the larger of two FCCUs at the refinery was restarted on June 11 and is at planned rates after shutting down on June 7 for what was expected to be 48-hours of repairs, a person familiar with operations at the refinery said on Tuesday.

Delek US Holdings (DK) reported a smoke condition at its oil refinery in Tyler, Texas, on Monday, a filing to Texas state environmental regulators said.

Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSA, RDSA.LN) reported flaring at a coker unit on June 12 at its oil refinery in Deer Park, Texas, according to a filing with Texas state environmental regulators made public Monday. The filing didn't indicate whether the event had an impact on coker unit operations.

Valero Energy Corp. (VLO) on June 13 said its Port Arthur, Texas, refinery is still operating at reduced rates while efforts to restart a coker unit continue since a lightning strike on June 6 caused a power failure. A blower malfunction at the plant's FCCU late on June 11 had no material impact on production, the co. said also on June 13.

Scheduled maintenance on a reformer unit at BP PLC's (BP, BP.LN) oil refinery in Whiting, Indiana, has been concluded and the unit is currently operating at planned rates, a person familiar with operations at the plant said. The unit, which produces high-octane gasoline blending components, was taken out of service at the end of March, along with an alkylation unit, for what was expected to be 60 days of planned turnaround maintenance.

Suncor Energy (SU) on June 9 said planned maintenance at one of two crude units and associated equipment had been concluded at its Edmonton refinery in Alberta, Canada. The plant had already resumed normal rates.

Valero Energy Corp. on June 9 said a pump snag at an FCCU at its Los Angeles-area refinery on June 7 had no material impact on production.

ConocoPhillips (COP) on June 9 said the fire-hit crude unit at its Bayway refinery in Linden, N.J., remained shut and the plant continued to run at reduced rates following a June 1 fire.
