HOUSTON Jan 11 (Reuters) - BP Plc (BP.L: Quote) (BP.N: Quote) is performing planned maintenance at its 265,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) Los Angeles-area refinery in Carson, California, through at least Jan. 21, according to sources familiar with refinery operations.

The work's impact on production is expected to be nil, the sources said.
