The 245,000 barrel-per-day refinery at Garyville, Louisiana, the company's largest, was being reopened over the weekend, officials said.
Of the eight refineries, belonging to various oil companies, knocked out by Katrina, the Garyville plant was the third largest.
The two larger plants - one owned by Chevron Corp (NYSE:CVX - News). and the other by ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP - News) - are both believed to have suffered extensive flood damage, and it was not immediately clear when they would be back online.
The Chevron facility in Pascagoula, Mississippi, had a capacity of 325,000 barrels per day and the ConocoPhillips refinery in Belle Chasse, Louisiana, had a capacity of 247,000 bpd.
