20:35 EDTTSOTesoro says Q1 impacted by work stoppages
Tesoro stated, "Q1 was impacted by work stoppages at the Anacortes, Washington and Los Angeles and Martinez, California refineries. Also during Q1, planned maintenance was performed at our Martinez, Anacortes and Salt Lake City, Utah refineries. The California region was the most significantly impacted by the work stoppage. The Martinez refinery was idled during February and March and production was impacted at the Los Angeles refinery. Compared 1Q14, California region throughput was lower by approximately 100,000 barrels per day, resulting in increased operating costs of more than $1 per barrel. The impact of the work stoppage and the planned turnarounds in Q1 resulted in a consolidated refining gross margin of $11.77 per barrel compared to the consolidated Tesoro Index of $16.71 per barrel. The combination of higher system throughput during January when margins were low, the work stoppage impact in February and March and inventory builds associated with the turnarounds resulted in lower capture rates for the quarter. We expect to realize a positive impact to system capture rates in Q2 as we are in the final steps of completing the planned maintenance."
