SINGAPORE, April 8 (Reuters) – ConocoPhillips (COP.N) will shut unit 20 at its 247,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) refinery in Sweeny, Texas, for maintenance, the company said in filing to state pollution regulators on Thursday.
The maintenance started on April 8 and will last until April 30, according to notices with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
The filing did not specify the function of unit 20. The event involves flaring at a coker, it added.
“The maintenance activities include but are not limited to depressuring equipment to the flare, steaming, and taking the flare gas recovery system out of service for a brief period,” it said. (Reporting by Judy Hua; Editing by Ed Lane)
