Valero announces production cut backs

The Valero McKee Refinery outside of Dumas that experienced an explosion earlier this year has just announced a cut back in production.

Valero Energy says a problem with a catalytic cracking unit has forced them to shut down one area for maintenance.

The company reports this will cause a loss of 30,000 barrels of gasoline and 3,000 barrels of jet fuel a day.

Officials say they hope to correct the problem within two weeks.
