SUGAR LAND–December 11, 2020–Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)–U.S. refineries have increased their runs following a low in April, but the COVID-19 pandemic and seasonal factors continue to hold those runs below the 2015-19 average, according to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. At the end of October, U.S. runs stood at 14 million barrels per day, about 13% below the average. With such market conditions hindering development, regular maintenance is as important as ever. Industrial Info is tracking 55 planned maintenance-related projects at U.S. refineries that are set to kick off from January through March, with a total investment value of nearly $900 million.
