United Refining rates reduced til Enbridge restart

NEW YORK, Aug 13 (BestGrowthStock) – United Refining said they will
continue to operate their western Pennsylvania refinery at
reduced rates while they wait for Enbridge Inc (ENB.TO: ) to
reopen the damaged crude oil line.

The privately held company said that its has other sources
of crude for its 70,000 barrel-per-day refinery in Warren but
that the types and the quantity of the crude are not as
favorable economically as that carried in Enbridge’s Line 6B.

The 190,000 barrel-per-day Enbridge line was shut on July
26 after a large leak was found in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The
line carries oil from Griffith, Indiana, to Sarnia, Ontario.

Enbridge’s first restart plan was rejected by U.S.
regulators. The second plan is expected to be submitted
Friday.

“We are optimistic. It appears that the next Enbridge plan
will be approved,” said John Wagner, a spokesman for United.

Once the plan is approved, the line is expected to be
restarted fairly quickly.
