Valero Energy Corp is repairing a compressor on the hydrocracker at its 125,000 barrel per day (bpd) Meraux, Louisiana, refinery, sources familiar with plant operations said on Thursday.

The 55,000 bpd hydrocracker was one of several units shut at the refinery on Sunday as heavy thunderstorms disrupted operations, the sources said. Valero kept the hydrocracker shut while restarting the other units. The unit is scheduled for a catalyst change in July.
