Phillips 66 (PSX) released an unknown amount of hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide and benzene at its Sweeny, Texas, oil refinery because of flaring after a power outage, according to a filing with the U.S. National Response Center.

Bloomberg News couldn’t immediately verify that the information in the NRC filing was accurate.
