Federal safety investigators criticize Chevron's (CVX) response to a leak at its Richmond refinery crude unit that caused a huge fire last August; the unit isn't expected to be restarted until the end of Q1. CVX has not specified the exact limits on the refinery's output, but its Q4 U.S. refining totals fell 226K bbl/day from Q2, the last period when Richmond was fully running throughout.
