    rehash of Iranian production talk…i thought that Saudis said they can go ahead and pump away….OPEC did not instruct them not to.

    why is it then that they are requesting an emergency OPEC meeting?

    re 1 – pretty typical Iran reaction – they want others to cut. 

    From tomorrow's post – the Genscape news just hit

    • Refinery Watch 1: BP Whiting – Genscape monitoring increased activity around the current offline large crude distillation unit. 
    • Refinery Watch 2: PBF – Delaware City Delaware – gasoline production to be down at least a month at the 65,000 bpd unit.  That's gasoline so that's probably about 100,000 bopd out of the total refinery's 185,000 bopd capacity that is now offline. Or about 0.5% of the nation's refining capacity.  
    • Refinery Watch 3: HollyFrontier fire over the weekend at Tulsa refinery, company says no impact on operations.
