Jan 14 (Reuters) - Independent refiner Tesoro Corp TSO.N said it expects combined throughput in the first quarter to be 545,000 to 595,000 barrels per day.
Throughput rates at its Golden Eagle refinery would be hurt by the planned commissioning of its new delayed coker, the western U.S. refiner said in a statement.
The coker modification project is expected to begin later in the quarter, Tesoro said. (Reporting by Avishek Mishra in Bangalore; Editing by Gopakumar Warrier)
