Please be advised that the Bakersfield Refinery will be experiencing two full power outages.  The power outages are at the request of PG&E to allow them to upgrade their Kern Switchyard for increased power reliability for Bakersfield Area.  The first power outage is scheduled from Tuesday morning on November 28th, to late Wednesday afternoon on November 29th .  The second outage is scheduled from Tuesday morning on December 5th, to late Friday afternoon  on December 8th.  While PG&E’s planned work will impact the refinery during this time, we will be working to minimize any impact including backing up critical systems.
