US independent refiner CVR has restarted several key units at its 75,000 b/d Wynnewood, Oklahoma, refinery and expects a return to normal operations by the end of the second quarter after a 28 April fire.

The refiner has restarted a crude distillation unit (CDU), fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCC) and alkylation unit at the plant, while a reformer is restarting, CVR said in an operational update today.

The April fire damaged pipe racks and pumps associated with the plant's naphtha processing units, the company said.

CVR expects throughputs of 170,000-190,000 b/d in the second quarter, information it did not report during earnings released on 29 April as it assessed the impact of the fire. CVR reported throughputs of 201,000 b/d in the second quarter of 2023.

The refiner expects its renewable diesel unit co-located at the Wynnewood plant to run throughputs of 1,800-2,600 b/d in the second quarter, down from 4,700 b/d in the prior year period.
