HOUSTON (Reuters) - Chevron Corp restarted the 112,229 barrel-per-day (bpd) Pasadena, Texas, refinery on Tuesday night after completing a multi-unit overhaul that was extended because of the COVID-19 pandemic, said sources familiar with plant operations. Chevron also operates a 352,000-bpd refinery in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Chevron wanted the refinery to process sweet crude coming from its oil fields in the Permian Basin of Texas. PRSI owns a 5.1-million-barrel storage tank farm and an additional 143 acres (58 hectares) of land along the Houston Ship Channel. In addition to the refinery, Chevron acquired PRSI, a Petrobras subsidiary that operates the refinery and owns subsidiary PRSI Trading, which trades in crude and refined products markets. The overhaul was originally to finish in mid-June, but was extended to mid-July.
