Exxon Beaumont Oil Refinery Reports Coker Compressor Trip

Nov. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Exxon Mobil Corp.’s Beaumont refinery in Texas was starting a wet-gas compressor associated with the coker unit that tripped today, according to a filing with state regulators.

The Irving, Texas-based company is starting the compressor and normalizing operations, according to a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. “The refinery anticipates minimal impact to production and all customers needs are being met,” it said.

The trip may result in flaring from the coker unit until 4:14 a.m. local time tomorrow, the notice showed. Exxon Mobil’s media relations department wasn’t available for immediate comment. The Beaumont facility has a capacity of 345,000 barrels a day, according to Bloomberg data.
