CALGARY, Alberta, May 12 (Reuters) - Harvest Energy Trust HTE_u.TO said it has completed a major maintenance turnaround at its 115,000 barrel a day refinery at Come by Chance, Newfoundland and Labrador.
In its first-quarter earnings release issued late on Monday, the trust said it has wrapped up the maintenance work, which included at catalyst replacement in the hydrocracker and distillate hydrotreater, and regeneration of a platformer catalyst.
Harvest said it also refurbished several other process and utility units at the facility.
