2000-01-14 10:58:24 EST ***BP-AMOCO YORKTOWN REFINERY GLITCH, MOTIVA DELAWARE CRUDE UNIT STILL IDLE Virginia based jobbers tell OPIS that BP Amoco's 62,000 b/d Yorktown refinery has experienced a "mechanical problem" forcing the refiner to suspend rack sales of both high and low sulfur distillate until further notice. One jobber said he was sent a fax from the Yorktown terminal informing him of the product outage. Meanwhile, New York Harbor spot sources say that crude unit problems still continue at Motiva's 160,000 b/d Delaware City refinery with no sight of a possible restart until early next week. - Mark Mahoney - mmahoney@opisnet.com
